About this Sunday: The season of Advent is a season of waiting – its discipline and wisdom. The discipline and wisdom of waiting begins with the feeling of the VOID, the feeling of emptiness that we try to fill up with all sorts of short term solutions. This Sunday we will talk about what we do in the midst of the void of Jesus being physically with us (outside of the Lord’s Supper), and how the wait for Him to come into our world is something that moves us to cherish and look expectantly to His coming all the more.
“Behold, the days are coming, declares the LORD, when I will fulfill the promise I made to the house of Israel and the house of Judah. In those days and at that time I will cause a righteous Branch to spring up for David, and he shall execute justice and righteousness in the land. In those days Judah will be saved, and Jerusalem will dwell securely. And this is the name by which it will be called: ‘The LORD is our righteousness.’ (Jeremiah 33:14-16 ESV)
