The Advent of Something New
The church season of Advent is a time of expectation and anticipation–watching for the new things that God is doin in our world and in our lives. It’s also a gentle protest of the over-commercialization of Christmas. Join us for worship in Advent–it will be good for your soul, and for your sanity.
From Pastor Paul
For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope. (Jeremiah 29.11)
Each year, the season of Advent gives us the opportunity to tap into our deep longing and yearning for God; our conviction that God indeed has great plans for us and for our well-being.
Advent is a time to look at our world and our lives and determine what is lacking. How could our sense of connection to the divine be stronger? How could we live our lives with more joy, more confident in God’s care for us?
We are not just waiting to celebrate an event that happened more than 2000 years ago. We are anticipating that Christ wants to “be born” in our lives, in new and exciting ways, in this and every year.
The themes of Advent are captured well in the hymn “O Come, O Come Emmanuel.” We long for God to rescue us from anything that holds us in darkness or in chains. Our Sunday scriptures in Advent begin why the prophet Isaiah crying out to God: “O that you would tear open the heavens and come down!”
During Advent, we have the courage to ask God to enter our daily reality. And we know that when God does, we will experience a change that is joyful and good.
