Summary: ADVENT 1, YEAR A - Are we ready for the coming of the Lord?

INTRODUCTION

Use story about watching and waiting

TODAY IS THE 1ST DAY OF ADVENT

YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS

DON’T YOU?

JUST 22 MORE SHOPPING DAYS

TIL CHRISTMAS

I SEE THE PANIC IN YOUR EYES

ALL THE THINGS

YOU NEED TO BUY

ALL THE THINGS

THAT NEED DOING

ALL THE PLANS

WAITING TO BE DONE

BUT DO YOU REMEMBER

WHAT IT WAS LIKE AS A CHILD

DURING THIS TIME OF YEAR?

HIDING PRESENTS

FOR THOSE YOU LOVE

FINDING PRESENTS

HIDDEN BY THOSE WHO

LOVE YOU

BEGGING YOUR PARENTS

TO OPEN ONE PRESENT

EARLY

ADVENT IS A TIME OF WAITING

A TIME USED BY MOST OF US FOR

SETTING UP FOR CHRISTMAS

WHILE YOU WAIT FOR CHRISTMAS

WE ALL EXPERIENCE

ANTICIPATION,

WAITING,

LONGING,

HOPING,

ITCHING WITH DESIRE

WE ALL WONDER IS IT EVER

GOING TO GET HERE?

TO PREPARE US FOR WHAT IS COMING

OUR SCRIPTURE FOR TODAY READS,

“But of that day and hour no one knows,

not even the angels of heaven,

nor the Son,

but the Father only.

As were the days of Noah,

so will be the coming

of the Son of man.

For as in those days before the flood

they were eating and drinking,

marrying and giving in marriage,

until the day when Noah entered the ark,

and they did not know

until the flood came

and swept them all away,

so will be the coming

of the Son of man.

WHAT A STRANGE PASSAGE

FOR THIS SCRIPTURE

SPEAKS OF CHRIST’S

SECOND COMING

BUT DURING ADVENT

DON’T WE LOOK TO CHRIST’S

FIRST COMING

AS A BABY

BORN IN A MANGER

FAR FROM HOME

WITH ONLY SHEPHERDS

TO WITNESS HIS BIRTH

BUT THIS IS FITTING

FOR ADVENT MEANS

WAITING

WATCHING

ANTICIPATION

FOR ADVENT SEEKS TO REMIND US

THAT JUST AS THEY WERE

UNPREPARED FOR CHRIST

COMING THE FIRST TIME,

SO WILL MANKIND

BE UNPREPARED

WHEN HE COMES

THE SECOND TIME

AS IN THE DAYS OF NOAH

AROUND THE WORLD

PEOPLE PREPARE

FOR THE COMING

OF CHRISTMAS

BUT FEW PREPARE

FOR THE COMING OF CHRIST

FOR WHOM

THE CHRIST-MAS

IS ALL ABOUT

ADVENT IS HERE TO REMIND US

THE REAL REASON FOR THE SEASON

IN THE FRANTIC PACE

OF THE CHISTMAS SEASON

WE ALL CARRY ON

AS IF OUR FUTURE

IS CERTAIN,

AS IF WE’VE GOT PLENTY

OF TIME BEFORE

THE CHRIST RETURNS

WELL DON’T WE?

AFTER ALL IT’S CHRISTMAS

WE HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT

ISN’T IT?

AS IN THE DAYS OF NOAH,

WE GO ABOUT

HERE AND THERE

DOING

THIS AND THAT

UNAWARE OF WHAT GOD

IS ABOUT TO DO

IN THE MIDST OF OUR

HERE AND OUR NOW

SO LET US TAKE THIS MOMENT

TO REMEMER WHAT GOD HAS DONE

THAT WE MIGHT BE PREPARED

FOR WHAT HE IS ABOUT TO DO

IN ADVENT WE REMEMBER

CHRIST’S COMING AS A BABY,

WE RE-TELL THE STORY OF

A CENSUS TO BE TAKEN

A LONG TRIP

NO PLACE TO SLEEP

A MANGER FOR A BED

A SON IS BORN

SHEPHERDS APPEAR

WITH A STRANGE

TALE TO TELL

SILENT NIGHT, HOLY NIGHT

THE CHRIST IS BORN

BUT IN ADVENT WE ALSO REMEMBER

CHRIST’S PROMISE TO COME AGAIN

I GO TO PREPARE

A PLACE FOR YOU

I WILL RETURN

TO TAKE YOU THERE

WHERE ALL TEARS

WILL BE WIPED AWAY

AND ALL SORRY

WILL COME TO AN END

WHEN WE WILL FINALLY SEE

THE CHRIST FACE TO FACE

ADVENT IS THAT TIME

THAT LIES BETWEEN

CHRIST’S BIRTH

AND HIS RETURN TO JUDGE

THE LIVING

AND THE DEAD

ADVENT IS THAT TIME OF

LONGING FOR, AND

ITCHING ANTICIPATION OF

WHAT IS STILL TO COME

ADVENT IS THE TIME BETWEEN TIME

THIS IS THE TIME OF

THE ALREADY BUT NOT YET

THIS IS THE TIME OF

WATCHING AND WAITING

THIS IS THE TIME BETWEEN

WHAT HAS COME AND
