Although it seems fall has just arrived, in looking at the calendar the holidays are just around the corner! As the years go by, it seems the time between the trick-or-treating of Halloween and the deck[ing] the halls with boughs of holly of the Christmas season gets shorter and shorter. It is so easy to get caught up in the frenzy of holiday preparations that the holidays come and go before we know it and a new year begins.
If you’ve decided that—short of stopping the clock—you want this year to be different, consider joining Pastor Jean for Lunchtime Ladies where we will munch our lunch (each lady brings her own) as we discuss best-selling author Liz Curtis Higgs’ book, The Women of Christmas. We’ll learn how God blesses three women — barren Elizabeth, youthful Mary and elderly Anna.
Lunchtime Ladies will meet Thursdays from noon to around 1:00 p.m. beginning Thursday, October 15 in Classroom 2 of the Education Building at Sun Lakes United Methodist Church. The address is 9248 E. Riggs Road, Sun Lakes. For more information or to register ($11 for the book), contact the church office at 480-895-8766.
