Remaining tags will be listed electronically and will be published in next week’s Snapshot.  Please return the gifts to the church office, wrapped with the tag taped to the present, by Dec 15th.  The gifts will be given to the families on Dec 17th.  Thank you to everyone who so generously participates in this program!

The Longest Night – A Service for the Weary: December 21 is the longest night of the year in the northern hemisphere, the winter solstice. Sometimes the festivity surrounding the Advent and Christmas seasons does not match the weariness in our hearts – challenges in our own lives, pain and heartbreak in the world around us. All Saints Episcopal Church is joining with Redeemer Lutheran Church for a contemplative service to let our weary hearts, bodies, and spirits rest on Thursday, December 21st, at 7 pm at Redeemer Lutheran Church (2920 Cassia St, Boise). Simple music, prayers, and readings will give us a place to let us care for ourselves and one another.

Ladies Who Lunch:  We are not meeting this month, but be sure to catch the deets in December!
