Senior Pastor David Ball reminds us that in the midst of frantic preparations for Christmas few really prepare. True Advent preparation requires a dramatic shift in our focus from "stuff" below -- to those around us and the message on high. Our culture makes this difficult. But Advent is not about working harder, it is about focusing and opening our eyes to the wonder God has prepared for us.
The Scripture Lessons for the Day were:
- Malachi 3:1-4
- Isaiah 57:14-16
- Luke 1:5-25
