Saturday Night Reflections

It was a great kick-off to Advent tonight. We're taking a different look at advent. Specifically looking at major events throughout scripture and how they each serve to prepare for the coming of Jesus.

Tonight was about Creation. God's initial preparatory step.

We used Genesis 1 in a readers theater, interspersed with instrumental statements from O Come, O Come, Emmanuel. Our Music and Drama teams were awesome! I hope that we were able to help people see creation anew. And I hope that we will all remember the importance of Advent - the importance of preparation for Christmas.

The more we can remind one another to inspect (and clean out) our lives, the better we'll be able to come to God in true worship.

Looking forward to see what He has in store between now and Christmas...
