Open Hearts, Open Minds, Open Doors
An environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling,
It's the most wonderful time of the year!
The lights, the music, the shopping, the giving, the food, the hustle and bustle, the ringing bells, the traffic gnarls,
and HOPE, LOVE, JOY, PEACE.
It may be hard to remember the hope-love-joy-peace part of Christmas because we can't see them. Let's face it: the world isn't always hopeful or loving and peace on earth is the superficial cry at beauty pageants, not a reality. We long for peace on earth (don't we?) but we can buy fa-la-la-lattes!
We are simply looking for hope, love, joy and peace at NEUMC this Christmas season.
Join us! Take a deep breath, put love in action, sing a carol or two, eat a clemetine, become a sign of hope.
Return to your senses this Christmas season.
