ADVENT SERMON SERIES
The Gift You Have No Idea You Already Have.
Christmas is often about gifts. Some gifts are big. Some gifts are small. But most of them are new. In this sermon series, Rev. Tom Are will reflect on the gifts the season of Advent brings. They are not all new gifts. They are works of God that the birth of Jesus Christ make real in this world, in this life, in your life. Rev. Are also reminds us that Christian faith always calls us to look forward. The season of Advent invites us less to remember the birth of Christ and more to consider his second coming. But—there you go— in our culture, the second coming is perhaps the most misunderstood and overly simplified teaching in Christian faith. We will reflect on what reasonable and faithful people find meaningful in a confidence that the life of Jesus Christ is not only something in our past, but something in our future. It’s good news. It’s not scary. It’s not silly. It’s hope. It’s hope when you need it the most.
