Worship Series for Advent

We are called to be messengers of Good News. The stories of the angel visits to Zechariah, Mary, Joseph and the shepherds at Jesus' birth offer us inspiration to incorporate less fear and more goodness into our own lives and therefore, in the lives of all we touch.

The angels that appear in the story of Jesus’ birth would have been very comfortable in our world of tweets and hashtags. Their messages were often short and to the point–their favorite line being #DoNotBeAfraid. As we look at the stories of these winged messengers to Zechariah, Mary, Joseph and the Shepherds, we will contemplate what messages we can offer that will counteract a culture of fear and bring #morehope, #morepeace, #morejoy, and #morelove to the world.
