Advent:  Before there was plastic, we preserved summer's bounty in simple mason jars, so that even in the barren days of winter we could taste God's goodness.  The season of Advent is a time for simple things, and for keeping things simple.  It's a time to stop the frantic busyness, to stop the clutter of stuff wrapped in plastic.  Advent is a time to slow down and preserve what is really important:  hope and peace, joy and love and Christ.  It's the time to slow down and to see anew God wrapped in flesh and lying in a manger.  Join us this Advent season as we slow down, breathe and re-focus on God's goodness--- God's bounty preserved for this world, as it already is in heaven.  (The season of Advent this year begins on Dec. 2 and lasts through Christmas Eve, Dec. 24.  The Sunday worship services at Upsala Presbyterian Church begin at 10 A.M.  The Christmas Eve candlelight worship service will begin at 6 P.M.)
