Sermon: Awaken to the Birth of Christ
Theme: We celebrate the birth of Christ and God’s gift of being with us even when we are not able to have the traditions and activities we have been accustomed.
Purpose: We will welcome Christ into our lives anew.
Do we see Christ in the light of Advent or are we focusing on the things that are not as we would wish them to be? As Advent comes to a close are we preparing our hearts for something new and transforming? What would we like to receive in our hearts for this Christmas? What would we like to experience in terms of healing or release with the coming of Christ? What
parts of our lives have continued to be in darkness that have been waiting for the light to come? Can we share the light of Christ with someone who is particularly in need of hope, encouragement, or love?
