First, despite many in my congregation’s relentless mocking and name-calling – “scrooge” “just wrong” “uptight” “modern” – I will hold tight to my belief that Christmas carols should not be sung until Christmas Eve.  Cheesy Christmas albums at home, fine.  But building a sense of expectancy during Advent has always been a big part of my church worship experience and I am sticking to it.  Of course . . . since I really have little power here, thought folks graciously let me think I do, we will be singing carols here at MBCC.  *sigh*

But onto other things – non-SF Bay Area Folks feel free to tune out here – namely some great events that are taking place over the next month.

KENYA 2008 DINNER
Saturday, DECEMBER 8
5:00-8:00 @ MBCC

MBCC is sponsoring a crew to head to Kenya in 2008 to work at an orphanage.  In preparation for this as attendees and a congregation we will be gathering together for this family friendly event to prepare
together an authentic Kenyan dinner. We will be joined and instructed
by Helen Obande, a native Kenyan and student at SF State. Please bring
everyone you’ve ever known and we’ll make a beautiful dinner and party
together.
