Prepare the Way,

Advent, originating from the Latin adventus, means coming. Advent, like Lent, is a season marked by preparation and expectation. As the community of faith, we focus once again on waiting and expecting God to do the miraculous. Advent invites us to do the preparing work that John the Baptist points to in preparing the way for the Lord.

Prepare the Way!

This Sunday, Jesus offers words that call us to be ready when the kingdom of God bursts into our daily existence. The kairos of God disrupts our human chronos (God’s time and human time, respectively), and things cannot remain the same. For those who live to step on others, the message of Jesus is a message of judgment and a call to repentance. For those who cling to the promises of God in spite of all the social injuries they have been exposed to, the coming kingdom is a time to look up with hope and celebration. Jesus says, “stand up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near” (Lk. 21:28).

The Armor of God
We are roused to action by the call to put on the whole armor of God. That donning armor was preparatory for going into battle notwithstanding the very way in which this armor is described indicates that it is to prepare us for the work to which we have been called.

Be Good…

Today we celebrate communion and we come and eat from the “Bread of Life.” As we pray that we may be for the world the body and blood of Christ, redeemed by His blood, we begin a series of messages based on the book of James where we learn to be doers of the words and not hearers only.

Filipino Sunday,

It is a great blessing to celebrate Filipino Sunday, celebrating the Filipino Heritage and thanking God for such a vibrant and committed community of brothers and sister in our congregation. The occasion becomes more special as we receive Rev. Russ Locke who will share the message with us today.

Holy communion will be celebrated and after worship everybody is invited to the fellowship hall for a reception.

Become Known

Who is John the Baptist? What are the rumors about Jesus, John, and their ministries? How did King Herod respond to the word on the street? How are you and your congregation known in your city, community, and regional area? What impact are you making as followers of Jesus Christ? Somethings to reflect on and take into account! GBOD
