    TITLE: THE ABSURDITY OF ADVENT SCRIPTURE: ISAIAH 40:3-5 I so enjoy this time of the year in the Christian Calendar. Even after 35 years of Preaching and Pastoring, this season never grows old or tiresome as I stand in the pulpit. This is the First Sunday in Advent. • In the media the season ...read more
