Sunday Morning Preview - December 9, 2012

This week we celebrate with our annual favorite Children’s Christmas Concert and we will light the second candle - the peace candle - in our advent wreath. I will be preaching a sermon in keeping with the festivities entitled; “Peace On Earth”.

What did the angels come to announce all those years ago, and has it turned out to be a false message?Look at any evening news report; did God accomplish the announced objective?

Most who awaited Messiah did not believe that He had come in Jesus.
They awaited a conquering king; not a suffering servant.They awaited a political enforcer; not a spiritual healer. They awaited an earthly kingdom; not an eternal invisible one.

The original advent was missed by most people because of their incorrect carnal assumptions.
Could this also be true of us in our search for God’s peace?

Find out Sunday at 10:30.
