1st Sunday of Advent – 2023

Date: November 26, 2023
Key Speaker: Pastor Daniel Hanson
Season: Advent
Series: Advent 2023: Why Wait?

In Advent, we wait for the coming of Christ. Advent is not a part of the Christmas season, but rather it is a time that we prepare our hearts for the coming King. (“Advent” comes from the Latin word for “coming.”) During these four weeks, we are preparing our hearts for the coming of Jesus the Messiah and King – both his arrival that happened 2000 years ago and his coming again in the future. Advent invites us to wait. However, over these four weeks, we also want to ask, “Why wait?” We know that part of Advent is trusting that Jesus is both “already” and also “not yet” here. What would it look like if we leaned more into the “already?” Jesus is here! With us. For us. Now.
