Advent: Hope That Doesn’t Disappoint
Bible Text: Romans 5:1-5 | Preacher: Jerry Owen
Thanksgiving decorations come down, Christmas goes up, and many roll their eyes seeing at the opportunity for commercialism to inhale another buck. Mammon not withstanding, the season of Advent, teaches us that anticipation is a key part of the story. The hopes and fears of all the years are met in Bethlehem. Since history is a story, theology is a literary criticism, and buildup is part of any good story.
