Today we celebrate the Fourth Sunday of Advent in the morning and Christmas Eve this afternoon and evening. It will be a full day of remembering the great news of Advent, that God has come among us in Jesus Christ!
Oftentimes, attending worship services can seem like a dry religious ritual. We sit, stand, sing, say a prayer or two, listen to people talk, and then go on about our day. We wait for God to show up, but nothing seems to happen. In today's passage, we will see two people who waited their whole lives to see the Messiah and were rewarded for their waiting. I pray that you will be encouraged by their faithful witness as you wait on this Fourth Sunday of Advent!
Waiting with you,
Rev. Jeff Meyers
