We’re all waiting for something. In fact, it could be said that most of our lives are spent, in some way, waiting. Waiting for a relationship. Waiting for a job. Waiting for our financial situation to change. Waiting for the pain to go away. Waiting for the other shoe to drop. The things we find ourselves waiting for tell us a lot about who we are, especially our deepest longings. Most importantly, they tell us about the one to whom all our longings point.
This Advent, we are beginning a new series called “Wait For It.” We’ll walk through some reflections from the ancient poet/prophet, Isaiah, exploring what the things we wait for reveals about us – and how, ultimately, they point toward the God who has come to us in Jesus.
How does Christmas speak into our hope? What should we hope for, or rather, who can we hope in? Join us for this Park@Home to hear more!
Advent is the season where we wait for Jesus to be born - and on Christmas Eve we celebrate just that. But what does it mean that Jesus - Immanuel - has been born to us?
The birth of Jesus promises the coming of justice - but where is it? When we look around this world, too often we see the right fail and the wrong prevail. So where is justice, and how does it come in Jesus' birth?
Do you ever feel forgotten about? Like no one really knows you? Like no one really sees you? You're not alone. And the good news, is that God sees you.
We've all been in times where we're waiting for the wisdom needed to make a tough decision, or go a certain direction. How do we find wisdom in times like that?
What has robbed you of peace? What has you uneasy, unsettled, and undone? Whatever it is, Jesus is the one who brings peace - a peace that passes our understanding. Hear about how Isaiah told us about this years and years before Jesus' birth.
