Advent II

During our second week of Advent, we looked at the story of Gabriel and Mary. Looking at this story and indeed looking at the story of the Bible, we see a God who speaks and interacts with ordinary humans. Therein lies our hope - we serve a God who loves to speak with the weak, the lonely and the seemingly unimportant (Luke 1:26-38).

Advent I

We began Advent by looking at God's faithfulness to keep His promises. God's promise ignites hope. The fulfillment of the promise grants joy.  During advent we are reminded that our hope and joy are based primarily on His faithfulness to fulfill all of His promises (1 Thessalonians 5:24; Luke 4:16-21; Luke 1:5-24).
