The Advent season is not a “warm-up” for Christmas. It is a time to prepare. It is a time of longing and anticipation.
Worship helps us remember and anticipate.
We remember and celebrate the Incarnation, God becoming human. And we “re-live” and “re-enact” that historical moment when Jesus entered the earthly dimension of time and space as a baby born of human flesh.
But we also anticipate the future. Christ the KingÂ is coming back again to rule and to reign. Advent reminds us again of this part of The God Story, too.
Christmas Album JOYFUL!Â
Good news /bad news.
Good news is that I’ve been blessed with wonderful friendsÂ who’ve contributed to my new Christmas project,Â â€œJOYFULâ€Â Christmas Praise and Worship”Â And we’ve got 8 songs available now for immediate download.
Bad news is the project has 11 songs. Almost done with the final 3, but not quite, so the full release will be delayed by a week, until December 9th. Check it out here.Â
Â SUNRISE WORSHIP DEVOTIONALS: Advent Series
During the 25 day Advent Season, my sunrise devotionals will have an Advent theme.
Â A daily â€œworship ritualâ€ I practice is to listen toÂ The Daily Audio Bible podcast, take a photo of the morning sky, find a meaningful scripture or quote (usually from the DAB), and share it on Instagram/Facebook/Twitter.Â Please comment and share!Â
