BLC - Advent 2015 - Prepare The Way

With today’s celebration of Doom/Christ the King Sunday, we begin the liturgical calendar anew and enter into the season of Advent, a time of expectant waiting and preparation for the coming of Jesus. For Christians, the season of Advent anticipates the coming of Christ from two different perspectives: to share in the ancient longing for the coming of the Messiah, and to be alert for his Second Coming.

As Christians we live in a time of now and not yet.

Living as witnesses of the resurrection, we eagerly await the second coming of Christ by living a life worthy of the Gospel message. However, we often find ourselves impatient and exhausted by the call to share the good news of Christ.

Advent, the first season of the Christian church year, is a season full of anticipation and preparation. Advent helps us align our impatience, not with each other or the stumbling blocks of God’s mission, but with the long awaited Messiah, both now and not yet.  

This Advent we will talk about ‘Preparing the Way of the Lord’ within our community and our own lives by remembering the age-old story of God’s love and giving praise and thanks to God for God’s fulfilled promises.

Join us at BLC for Advent 2015: Prepare the Way.

 

May you and your loved ones be especially blessed this Advent and Christmastime.

All events are open events – please invite your loved ones and friends to join us this season. Kindly note that some of the services occur outside of our regular 10am service times (namely: 6 Dec and 20 Dec).
