Dear Methodists on the Yellowstone and beyond!
This week it was a joy to join in the effort to appreciate the healthcare workers and first responders in Livingston. In this dark year, as our days get shorter, we can increase our joy by sharing joy with others. This week we spread joy through flowers, candy, words of appreciation and smiles. This was a group effort. There’s still a way you can participate. We raised $500 but the project cost $700. If you would like to contribute, please make a check out to “Park County United Methodist Ministries” and send to Grace at 302 9th Street Livingston, MT 59047. Thank you to everyone!
In this season when joy is hard to come by, we must be more intentional about finding ways to spread joy. I think joy is like the stars shining in the night sky. Join us Sunday morning, or listen to the sermon on our website, as we explore more fully finding joy in the darkness.
Christmas Eve we will celebrate via Zoom worship at 7 pm. We will have stories and songs for all ages. Feel free to join in your pajamas. I’ll be wearing mine and join you from in front of my Christmas tree. Invite your friends and family! One blessing of this year is that people can join us from any location. So, share this information! (Note it is different than our weekly Sunday morning worship.)

I’ve attached my sermon from last Sunday which goes deeper into the idea of embracing the darkness and finding the gifts of God there. Or you can listen to it here: https://www.methodistsontheyellowstone.org/worship/embracing-the-darkness-consider
God is on the mountain top. God is in the valley. God is in the light. And God is in the darkness.
Thursday Hymns and Prayers This Thursday at 7 pm bring your favorite nativity or Christmas decoration to share. We will connect with one another, sing carols, and lift up our prayers. We have a great time together. All are welcome! Zoom ID# 522 462 362 call the church office for the password!
May the Lord bless you and keep you!
