“Jesus stands at the door and knocks. He asks you for help in the form of a beggar, in the form of a ruined human being in torn clothing. He confronts you in every person you meet. He walks on the earth as the one through whom God calls you, speaks to you and makes his demands. That is the greatest seriousness and the greatest blessedness of the Advent message
Advent “It is no use saying that we are born 2,000 years too late to give room to Christ. Nor will those who live at the end of the world have been born too late. Christ is always with us, always asking for room in our hearts.” Dorothy Day

Next Social Justice Meeting: Tuesday, January 7th, 2014. Care and Share Budget to be discussed
Our Thanksgiving Offertory Collection this year will benefit Churches United for the Homeless and Central Cities Ministries.
Churches United is the only shelter in town that can house a mom, dad and children together, and its family rooms are always full. It serves hundreds of meals each week and provides other necessities for homeless persons. We prepare and serve brunch there on the 5th Saturday of the month.
Central Cities Ministries is a collaboration of area faith communities that serves far beyond its original focus of the “center” of Fargo-Moorhead. It is considered to be somewhat of a “ last chance” for help because it responds to a variety of needs that can’t be met anywhere else. It also assists with the Sheltering Churches Project in winter.
Both of these organizations are part of our Care and Share Ministries.
The generosity shown by the people of Nativity at Thanksgiving makes a real difference in our community and has always been greatly appreciated. Please make checks payable to Nativity. Thank you.
