Advent: We Wait, We Witness
We all know that as soon Thanskgiving has come and gone, the "Holiday" season is upon us as we gear up for our Christmas celebrations. But these earlier and earlier celebrations make it more difficult for us to fully enter the season of Advent, the time of prepation and waitng prior to Christmas. So this year at Good Shepherd, we are observing an expanded Advent season. Week by week our worship space will gradually change and we will hear parables and stories of Christ's coming among us in different ways.As sure as the seasons change, Christ will return. But how do we wait, knowing the incredible thing that is promised?
