We live in a society that puts instant gratification within reach. Overnight shipping, 24-hour customer service and constantly-updated social media feeds cater to our ever-increasing impatience. In this age of right here and right now, it can be difficult to remember that some things are worth waiting for. The traditional Christian calendar celebrates the season of Advent. It’s a word taken from the Latin “adventus,” which can mean “arrival” or “coming.” During our Waiting for Change teaching series, we’re focusing on four themes -- hope, joy peace and love – that help to develop our faith as we wait for the fulfillment of God’s perfect will.
December 1 | Choose Hope over Cynicism
December 8 | Choose Joy over Despair
December 15 | Choose Peace over Hostility
December 22 | Choose Love over Fear
