December 2018 Sermon Series
The culture we live in is full of fake, right now — the artificial, inauthentic, and bogus. So much of the news? FAKE. How about our so-called “friends” on social media? They “like” you one minute, and in the next they are burning up your feed because you dared to be REAL!
For many of us, even the decoration of our homes and public spaces are artificial copies of pine, cedar, and mistletoe. There is nothing wrong with it. However, it begs the question: As we approach this holy-day, what is really REAL?
The Incarnation of Jesus is all about REAL things — flesh and blood, childbirth, true joy, genuine community — things which God brings to us that we can taste, touch, smell, hear, and see. God empowers us to become Christ’s REAL body and blood in our schools, our neighborhoods, our families, our workplaces… EVERYWHERE.
As a reminder of the reality of God’s presence with us, we will enjoy Holy Communion each Sunday during the Advent Season.
Below are the Scriptures we will be hearing and considering which give us REAL Good News that we can bring into our own flesh and our own voices.
