Sermon series

 

 

Advent is a season of great expectations.  Not because of gifts under trees, drinks in hand, or parties galore.  We have great expectations because Advent reminds us, annually, our God and Creator is a missionary God.  He is merciful and gracious.  He rescues, restores and redeems.  He comes close, stays close and is eternally faithful.  Our hope now and forever is in Jesus, our king, and in this hope, we celebrate love and peace, with joy.  

God's purpose for the church is to become His righteousness, justice.  His peace.  We become by participating with Christ Jesus, in the practices of Christ Jesus.  Participation is formative and also, at the same time it bears witness to, and extends, the faithful presence of Christ Jesus.
