Hope in the Lord who saves
1st week of Advent
In the beautiful contempletive music of Holden Evening Prayer, we hear a message of hope and anticipation.
In Psalm 130, we hear that God hears our call from the depths and we should continue to hope in the Lord who brings salvation.
When we hear Jesus describing the coming of the Son of Man with stars falling from heaven, it can sound dire and horrible, not like anything we would ever hope for. But when we really look at the suffering of people God loves, we can share the hope that God would tear open the heavens and come.
This Wednesday Advent Service will be available starting Dec. 2, 12pm here.
