“A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices”… even in the midst of all the tumult. It’s the second Sunday of Advent!… and we once again lean into Peace.
The world has gotten a bit topsy-turvy of late, hasn’t it? But it’s neither the first time nor the worst time. In fact, the Bible speaks a lot about living in a topsy-turvy world, precisely because most biblical people did! They lived through famine, devastating wars, upheavals, and personal losses so staggering that it took their breath away. They give us not only hope but also practical encouragement. And, as you know full well, so does Rick McKinney!…who brings us a message today that is drawn from his own life experience and that of the people of God in Scripture.
Thank you for telling us again and again how deeply meaningful the worship team’s offerings have been to you during this time! Once again, they invite us to the presence of the One who holds all of us in his hand. Along with those videos, you’ll see also a link to our Virtual Foyer, our bulletin, giving opportunities, and… new today!… an announcement about a plan for phasing-in the opportunity to gather in person. We were deeply grateful for your wisdom and feedback on the congregational survery we had distributed, as that is helping immensely in our ongoing planning.
We welcome you to join some friendly faces in the Zoom virtual foyer! Drop in any time between 11:00 – 11:30 AM on Sundays.
