    based on 10 ratings

    Advent. It is hard to do an orignial John the Baptist advent sermon isn’t it? I give it a go. Our life circumstances do not determine the validty of who Jesus is. Also, John 1:6-9, 15-16,19-23.

  • Just Which Advent????

    Contributed by The Rev Deniray Mueller on Dec 4, 2019

    during this Advent season, are we awaiting the birth of Jesus or his second coming?

    Matthew 11:2-11 The Season of Advent can be a very confusing time for some people: • on one hand, we all wait with wide-eyes for the birth of the Christ child • on the other, we are waiting for the second Coming of Jesus at the end of the world. Indeed a major part of the Christian faith more
