Awaiting the Child

A Series of Sermons For Advent

We have just entered the season of Advent, the four Sundays leading up to the celebration of Christmas.  Advent is a season of waiting, of expectation, of longing for the coming Redeemer.   This year we are going to spend the four weeks of Advent looking at the birth narratives of the Bible in a series of sermons called, “Awaiting the Child.”  Check them out below, along with the previous sermons from earlier in the Fall which are outlined as follows.

In September, we began the Fall with a short series of sermons on “Hearing and Heeding the Words of God.”  In particular, our focus was on those words by which God calls His people to live justly, and love mercy, and walk humbly with Him.  (Micah 6:8)  

In October we began a new series of sermons on “The Armor of God,” from the Apostle Paul’s Letter to the Ephesians 6:10-20.  We are living in a time of great conflict and polarazation.  It is a time of global upheaval, politically, economically, socially, environmentally….  It’s easy to wake up every day feeling defeated, but you don’t even know who or what the enemy is that’s defeating you.  In this series of sermons we are reflecting on Paul’s words in Ephesians 6 about the “spiritual battle” being waged all around us, and on the “armor” God has given us so that we can stand our ground in the battle, and not be defeated.
