Title: GCF: Advent POTLUCK Party
Location: The office (basement of Wycliffe College, 5 Hoskin Ave)
“But I trusted in your steadfast love;
My heart will rejoice in your salvation.
I will sing to the Lord, because he has dealt bountifully with me.”
Last week we spent time in prayer and song together, taking time to pause to reflect on some themes of Advent: anticipation, hope, longing, frustration, gratitude, excitement, joy. We recognized that Advent is not only about happiness and joy; it is also about desperation, longing, and the “already, not yet” of waiting for Christ’s return.
This week at GCF we’ll be taking time to focus on the JOY of the season.
“Joy to the world! The Lord has come!”
Come one, come all, to our annual Advent POTLUCK party!
There will be music.
There will be games.
There will be cookie-making.
There will be much laughter, I’m sure.
Come take a break from studying, reading, essay writing (or essay grading!) and join the GCF community for an evening of conversation and merriment.
Please bring something for the potluck; your favourite Christmas appetizer/main course/side/dessert, or anything else your heart (or, stomach) desires! If you can’t bring something, don’t let that keep you away. We will have plenty of food to share!
Also, feel free to bring a game or two to add to the post-dinner merriment.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
