The Unexpected Gift

The Unexpected Gift

For a long period, from the end of the Old Testament to the beginning of the New, God appears to be silent. The Jews continued to live faithful lives, but maybe stopped expecting the living God to intervene in their lives. Then, after this period of waiting, the gospels all begin with extraordinary stories of God breaking in to the lives of individuals with a message of hope.
Then, his messages were carried by angels. Today, do we expect God to still have a message for us? For our world? Advent is a time of waiting, of anticipation, of hope- not just as we look forward to celebration the coming of Jesus as a baby in Bethlehem, but as we look beyond that to his coming again as King, to the fulfilment of all the promises, of a new heaven and a new earth at the end of time.

This Sunday we are looking into the story of the Magi. In popular culture we often encounter three kings but as we read the passage we will discover that there were no three and there are no kings except for one.

This Sunday we conclude our “Special Delivery” advent series on the theme of God breaking into history and sending special messengers and messages to people in preparation for the birth of Jesus. The birth of Jesus –  Immanuel, God with us –  is truly good news and was accompanied by not one angel but a heavenly host giving glory to God. During Sunday’s talk, we will look at how the shepherds received this message of hope, of excitement, of praise, of good news to the world.

This Sunday we continue our “Special Delivery” advent series on the theme of God breaking into history and sending special messengers and messages to people in preparation for the birth of Jesus. We will explore together the story of Joseph – his encounter with an angel of the Lord led to a different course of action than what he had planned. Are we willing to consider that there could be another way of seeing things? Are we open to God changing our plans?

Waiting Expectantly

The message that Gabriel brought to Zechariah, and the message that his son Johan was to bring to the people of Israel, was the message to get ready! Be prepared! God is at work! This is still the message of Advent: wait expectantly, because God is at work.
