Sermon: “The Way to Joyfulness and Peace”
Theme: A relationship with Christ calls us away from empty living and sets us free to know meaningful relationships and lasting joy.
Purpose: The congregation will take time to think about what is important in their relationship with God and what is getting in the way.
Scriptures: Philippians 4:4-7 Rejoice in the Lord, The peace that passes all understanding.
Luke 3:7-18 John the Baptist calls the people to a new relationship of righteousness with God.
How does John the Baptist fit into the Advent season? What does it mean to seek to be renewed by focusing on our relationship with God over and above our traditions? What might happen if we take seriously a call to find meaning in God’s love and purpose? How do we learn to set aside the things that get between us and our healthy relationships with God and our family? In what ways would a renewal of our hearts result in renewal of other parts of our lives? How do we commit to what is really important for Christmas?
