Pursuing the King: awaiting and living kingdom realities
As the Christmas season is upon us, we can easily get entangled with the whirlwind of deadlines, obligations and traditions. It threatens to be less a holy season and more of a chaotic collision. In the midst of this messiness, Advent teaches us to wait, to live in hope and peace, to savor the promised coming of the King. In Advent, we learn to turn away from worldly gain and instead eagerly expect the coming of Jesus. Even more, we learn to imagine and prepare for the full consummation of the kingdom of God because Advent is not just joyful jubilation that Jesus has come…it’s that He’s coming again.
Beginning November 27, each Sunday will feature a different creative experience in the Gathering Room that fits the morning’s theme culminating in a One-Service Sunday on December 25. Join us for these five special Sunday mornings.
