This Sunday begins our celebration of Advent. Advent means “coming” and is a season of preparation beginning four Sundays before Christmas and concluding Christmas Eve. In a world that does not like to wait, Advent slows us down to consider the coming and second coming of Jesus Christ.
During the next four weeks, we will look at Christmas Stories- stories that Jesus told that point to the Hope, Peace, Love, and Joy of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This week we will look at a story Jesus told in Matthew 25:1-13 about a wedding and waiting. Be sure to join us this week for Worship at 10:15 am as we celebrate Advent together.
