The most wonderful time of the year?
This is the first Sunday of Advent, our season of waiting, and our season of expectation, as we prepare our hearts again for Christmas, and for the celebration of the birth of the Child of Bethlehem.
Ain’t expectations something?
I remember as a child, each Christmas, particularly each Christmas Eve, I would be full of expectations… and I can’t remember even once when the expectation matched the reality of Christmas Day.
That, friends, is the blessing of Jesus: we almost never get what we expect… but we almost always get something so much better.
Join us in worship on Sunday at 10:15am live in the sanctuary of the Pownal UMC, or via Facebook or YouTube, or through our website, as we begin our Advent series: the Heart that Grew Three Sizes, experiencing Advent, Christmas, and, this week, unmet expectations, through the eyes of the Grinch.
