Join us this Advent Season

Advent Theme:  The Supporting Cast                                               

We all know that in a drama or a movie supporting characters often play key roles. They can shine light on the main character’s hidden humanity, offering hope or a dramatic turnaround where none seems possible. They can remind us why the journey of the main character is important, especially when that character is most troubled or lost.  In four Advent sermons we will exam how prophets, angels, shepherds and magi make the story of the birth of Jesus as magical and mysterious as it is. 

Dec. 3     Advent #1     Prophets: Longing for Peace                                 
               Isaiah 9:2-7

Dec. 10   Advent #2     Angels:  When You are Not Sure What to Hope For
              Matthew 1:18-24 

Dec. 17   Advent #3     Shepherds: Joy, the Antidote to Fear                                  
              Luke 2:8-15

Dec. 24   Advent #4     Magi:  Love,  The Power of Devotion                                                             Matthew 2:1-9
