LOOKING FOR MESSIAH WITH HOPE AND FEAR: Nov 19 – Dec 17.
This Advent, we will be digging into what it means to look for, expect and wait for a Messiah to come into our lives. For us, right here and right now, what are we waiting for? What are we longing for? What do we think will save us? What are we afraid of? And how do our hopes and fears compare to those of the ancient Israelites who first imagined the coming of a Messiah? Speakers include Rev.’s Jamie McElroy & Ann McLemore, and Prof. James Bowley of Millsaps College.
Have you ever struggled with a passage of Scripture? If not, get prepared for this week’s lesson from the Prophet Zephaniah (1:7, 12-18). Prophets are such downers. And Zephaniah’s prophecy is one that will really bring you down. But, the prophet’s words make us concentrate on where we place our trust. In power? In wealth? In ourselves? And if not in these things, then where? We’ll see if Zephaniah can be any help in answering that question. See you Sunday, Father Seth+
