Advent Sermon Series: Come Thou Long-Expected Jesus
December 1 – December 22
Jesus is coming into the world again this Christmas – just as he did 2,000 years ago and just as he does every day in every moment. In Advent, we wait and we hope and we long for Jesus to be born in our lives and in our world in a new way. This Advent, we will explore the song “Come Thou Long-Expected Jesus” to help us prepare to welcome the Christ who frees and transforms us, who consoles us in our sadness, who demands our exclusive allegiance, and who will usher in God’s reign of love and justice for everyone.
