Dear Friends,

This coming Sunday in 11am worship we'll celebrate New Year's Communion. Our texts are Genesis 1:1-5 and Mark 1:4-11, and Eileen Smith is the liturgist. My meditation invites us to rejoice in the gift of God's love in these sacred days. Lee Wright, Alan Jones, and Jason Cloen will weave inspiring music throughout our service. Sunday School and Youth Group begin our winter-spring season following the time with children and youth.

At 9:50 am in the Shaw Room, our own Bill Smith, retired attorney and spiritual seeker, will present "The Bio-psycho-social Model and Fully Passionate Palliative Care--A Layman's Vision of Humanity."

Loving-kindness Meditation begins in the Church Library at 10:10.

Blessings to everyone as we begin this New Year!

With you in the light and love of God,

The Rev. Dr. Pat Youngdahl, Pastor
Downtown Presbyterian Church
Rochester, New York
