Today is the first day of Advent. Today we began the lighting of the first Advent Candle as we journey towards the Christmas season. In the first sermon of Awaken, we focus on the fourth reading of the Lectionary texts. In 1 Corinthians, Paul highlights in his greetings that God has gifted and equipped the people of God for a special purpose. Using the film “It’s A Wonderful Life” as a backdrop, we will encourage everyone to accept their place in God’s story and within the story of the people with whom they have had interaction.
