Our Advent theme for this year is “What Child is This?” He is the Messiah, the Christ, the Lord, the One we have been waiting for all these years! Will the waiting ever cease? Will the dawn of Christmas morning ever arrive? How much longer until we can leave our beds and open the morning with celebration and joy? It is hard to wait for the arrival.
The night before Christmas may seem like the longest night of waiting during the year. However, the waiting for the advent of Jesus that first Christmas had been a long time coming for many generations of people. Followers of Jesus all over the world celebrate that the waiting of the Messiah is over with regards to the first advent. Now, the waiting continues for the second advent.
Yes, we are the waiting people. We are called to wait with trust, hope, expectant provision, in quiet at times, yet always knowing He is coming soon.
We hope you will join us for this sermon series during Sunday morning worship services (8:45 & 11:00 am) in December.
Grace and peace,
Rev. Charles Broome
