December Village Streams Available

This month's edition of Village Streams, ACV's e-newsletter that provides useful and timely information about ACV and concerning the issues of aging and its effects on families is now available.

Annie Moses Band Comes to ACV

Several years ago, my family and I had the opportunity to attend an Annie Moses Band concert at North Florida Community College in Madison, Florida. We had never heard of the group. We knew it was a family of musicians, and that there would be singing and people playing instruments like violins, piano and percussion. It had been a long week and the four of us talked about not going, even though we already had tickets. Ultimately, we decided to go. By the end of the first song, we were very glad we were there.

Live Nativity at Advent Christian Village

Few Americans would say they don’t know anything about the story of Christmas — the virgin birth, the star, a stable, angels singing. The story has been told in many ways over the years. How many times have we watched Linus explain what the season is really about in A Charlie Brown Christmas? Movies have been made about it. Christmas pageants are held every year in churches across the nation.

Away from Home for the Holidays

Home for the holidays. Don’t those words paint a happy picture? Just imagine: In the living room is a giant tree laden with ornaments and presents piled underneath. Garlands and swags hang from banisters and mantles. Candles flicker in every window and hundreds of lights glow outside. It is a scene worthy of a Christmas card. But sometimes people find themselves lodged “at the inn” instead. Usually it’s only for a few days because Grandma’s house couldn’t fit everyone. Christmas is a time for joy, and even if you’re an out-of-towner, whether for one night or many, you can still have a holiday that is merry and bright.

‘Destination Joy’: A Dramatic Cantata

Are you having trouble finding your Christmas joy this year? Have you lost a loved one who you miss terribly? Are you disappointed because it seems like your prayers aren’t being heard? Is your life just not turning out the way you had hoped? If you can relate to any of these sentiments — or if you know someone who can — plan to attend Destination Joy, the Village Church’s Christmas performance that is half play, half cantata, and full of hope.

What is GriefShare?

Each of us has experienced grief. People can grieve many different things in life — homesickness, side effects of advanced aging or illness, and even general disappointments. And we have all experienced grief due to loss of life, whether for a stranger (9/11, Columbine, etc.), a friend, family members, or possibly spouses. Is there help for people dealing with grief?
