Rev. Jennifer Casey Associate Pastor chmaster.org

A few weeks ago I was attending a conference, and I was standing in a hotel ballroom that was trying its best to look like a worship space. I was surrounded by people singing loudly praises to God who was clearly deserving. The problem? I had no voice. I was not feeling well at all. The day before my throat was scratchy, but when I woke up and tried to sing, I could not even get a note out. For this Pastor, singing in worship holds deep meaning. It is when I truly feel connected to God. But in that moment? I felt isolated and alone. Sure, I did not have a singing voice, but I felt like my connection to the Holy One went with it… Have you ever lost your voice? I’m talking about more than just when your scratchy throat kept you from speaking. Have you ever felt unheard, isolated, and alone? The Christmas story begins with Zechariah, the spouse of Elizabeth, learning that his wife was pregnant, losing his voice. Zechariah was trying to process the God story unfolding around him and his voice was gone. In this season, there are lots of voices that are competing for our attention. The voices of individuals, ideals, political parties, and theological identities are all trying to speak over each other, dominating with their volume. But do we listen for those whose voices are gone? To the voices of those who are oppressed? To the voices of those whose voices have been taken from them? Ultimately, Zechariah’s voice is restored when he declares in writing that his son’s name will be John. He and Elizabeth have stood together and have named their child according to God’s plan, and the people listened. And what is the first thing that Zechariah uses his voice for? Praising God. Perhaps instead of ignoring, mocking, and victimizing the voiceless we can find a way to hear them and proclaim God’s hope. Because I believe that when they speak, we will be surprised by the praise of our deserving God that we are led into.

A NOTE FROM PASTOR JENNIFER Beloved in Christ, As I write this note I am sitting in the Worthington Mall on a weekday morning. It is quiet and peaceful. It’s a bit too early for many shoppers to be out and about. Time and care have been put into decorating the mall. It is filled with trees, wreaths, and ribbons. While it is quiet right now, the air is filled with an anticipation of something more to come. I am reminded of the Advent season, the time in our liturgical year where we wait with anticipation for the coming of God incarnate, Jesus Christ. It is an incredibly unique, and if we allow it, challenging time in the Christian calendar. What does it mean for us to wait for something which has already arrived? Jesus Christ has already arrived, lived, died, and been resurrected. And yet we wait. This season I encourage you to reflect on what it means to wait for something which has already arrived. How are you opening yourself up to experiencing God in new and deeper ways? Where do you see God’s activity in your life and the lives of others? What spiritual disciplines could you invest or re-invest in to maintain a continual awareness of God’s Spirit? As I continue to write, a young child just stopped to marvel at the Christmas tree beside my table. As she paused to look, she exclaimed loudly to her mother, “Look mom! That tree is so big and pretty!” As you encounter God this Advent season, may you be in awe of God and marvel at God’s majesty and beauty. Grace and Peace, Pastor Jennifer

ADVENT 2018 ADVENT FOR THE AGES - Join together on Saturday, December 1, from 3:30-5:30 p.m. for an afternoon filled with worship, singing, crafts, games and supper as we begin the Advent season. This experience is designed for all ages. THE CHURCH OF THE MASTER FAMILY CHRISTMAS TREE- A few years ago a big and beautiful tree was donated to Church of the Master. It sits in the front left corner under the balcony. Many of us find decorating our Christmas tree a chance to stop and reminisce with stories about the ornaments, where they came from and who they were from. We have created a “Church of the Master Family Tree”. We are asking our church family members to pick out an ornament, either from your own collection or a new one that represents you/your family to donate to the church. Beginning December 2, there will be a table to drop off the ornaments. We will take a picture of the ornament and have a simple form for you to fill out that will then be put into a scrapbook. Each year as we take out those ornaments, we will be able to reminisce about our church family, and we will offer the chance to add ornaments each year to our new family members. If you have questions about this new project, please contact Bev at the church office or [email protected] or 330- 416-4656. BLUE CHRISTMAS - The holiday season isn’t always a time of cheer. Many are grieving over a death, loss, distance from family, illness, broken relationship, and many other reasons. If you are experiencing any type of grief, you are invited to come to a special worship experience designed to be quiet, contemplative, and mindful of those who do not experience the Christmas season with happiness. This service will be held in the sanctuary on Friday, December 21, at 7:00 p.m. In addition to our 5:00 p.m. Family and 7:30 p.m. Candlelight worship services on Christmas Eve, we will again be celebrating Communion at an 11:00 p.m. service. Each of last year’s services for Christmas Eve was special in its own way, so we encourage you to come to one, two, or all of them. You are Invited to a Church-wide Christmas Eve Potluck Supper! Are you having trouble figuring out how to find time to eat supper and attend the Christmas Eve services? We’ve got the answer for you! Join us for a Potluck Supper between the two services. The meal usually begins at approximately 6:15 p.m. Everyone is welcome! To facilitate planning, please let Bev Pancoast ([email protected] or 330-416-4656) know by Saturday, December 22. You can sign up on the link below so we know what people are bringing: https://www.PerfectPotluck.com/RRLA9506. If you have questions, please contact Bev. Worship on December 30th will be at our regular times, 8:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. Christmas Eve Worship 5:00 p.m. 6:15 p.m. 7:30 p.m. 11:00 p.m.
