Salvation Army Volunteer Day: December 30

on  December 30, 2018

On the fifth Sunday of months with five Sundays, Holy Redeemer Lutheran Church serves hot meals to the hungry and homeless at The Salvation Army located in Hayward, CA.  This is a great opportunity to help the community.  The smiles on the faces of those you help are a rewarding sight to see.

About four or five people from HRLC are needed to serve food and clean up afterwards. 
December 30, 2018  is the next fifth Sunday. Save the date! If you would like to volunteer to serve meals on Dec 30th, please contact the church office, 510-793-1911.

“Good news? Great joy? Messiah? Here? Now?” “This I gotta see!”

Pastor Barbara Caine

Come and See!

When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let us go now to Bethlehem and see this thing that has taken place, which the Lord has made known to us.” So they went with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the child lying in the manger.When they saw this, they made known what had been told them about this child; and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds told them.Luke 2:15-18

Come and see!  Can you picture the multitude of angels, singing on that frosty night?  Wouldn’t your jaw drop at the sight?  “They said what?” you might ask.  “Good news?  Great joy?  Messiah?  Here? Now?”  And someone else says, “This I gotta see!”

 “Yeah,” you whisper to yourself, “This I gotta see.” 

“Come and See!” is our theme for Advent this year.  Advent is a waiting time, the time when we remember all the ways that God comes to us, and specifically, when Jesus came, God in the flesh, our Emmanuel.  Each year during Advent we remember the long years spent waiting for the predicted Messiah. We remember that our God came to earth as a tiny, vulnerable, human baby.  Like the shepherd on that frosty night, we come and see the little one, and remember that our God knows what it is to be human, to be cherished by family, cared for by loved ones, revered by the wise, rejected by others, betrayed by friends, and, eventually, killed for speaking truth to power, and attempting to empower the vulnerable.

When the [shepherds] saw this, they made known what had been told them about this child; and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds told them.   We, like the shepherds, are called to come and see, and then to go and tell!  This year, who needs to come and see?  Who are you called to go and tell?  God gives you power to see the vulnerable, speak for the powerless, invite the skeptical, share with those who need help, and most of all, love like the  one who came to us.  Jesus, the child born poor, who brings us good news of great joy for all the people.  Our Messiah, our Jesus, come and see!

In Christ,
Pastor Barbara
