Fourth Sunday of Advent
Scripture includes: Micah 5:2-5a and Luke 1:39-55
Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “Laboring Love ”
Two women rejoicing at the good news of new life. Two women choosing to journey with God’s plan, even when it’s difficult and scary. The “hill country” and a small village called Bethlehem playing host to God’s heralds. What will be birthed from this laboring love? How will God come to be a part of the lives of these dedicated women and the rest of the world? How will Love be born into our midst?
Today is the Fourth Sunday of Advent, the inaugural season of the Christian year. Advent is a time of spiritual preparation for the coming of Christ; thus, it is a season of both joyous and solemn expectation. The liturgical color is purple, symbolic of a spirit of preparation.
