Advent Word 1 - Unexpected

Posted by Bethany Nelson on

On this first Sunday of Advent, our Advent Word is "unexpected." How appropriate for a church going through a renovation! We certainly have experienced our share of the unexpected already, and will no doubt continue to encounter the unexpected. And, it is the unexpected which is at the very heart of Christmas. The Messiah entering our lives as a little baby? Unexpected! An unknown teenager told by an angel she would be his mother? Unexpected! Lowly shepherds being the first to hear the news of his birth? Unexpected!
Though the unexpected can be uncomfortable and scary, it can also be full of wonder and delight. May we delight in the unexpected this Advent season.
