Series: Company’s Coming

Waiting on the Threshold (Traditional)

December 20, 2020 | Rev. Will White

Passage: Luke 1:46-55

The Fourth Sunday in Advent,
December 20, 2020

Rev. Will White continued his Worship Series
“Company’s Coming”.
The fourth Sermon was 
"Waiting on the Threshold"

Based on Scriptures
2 Samuel 7:1-11, Luke 1:47-55, Romans 16:25-27 and Luke 1:26-38

It’s the fourth Sunday of Advent, and the tug of war is over. Christmas now takes center stage. Families who have come home and may not join you for Christmas Eve services are expecting a Christmas message. It won’t do to keep to the Advent theme of anticipation of the second coming of Christ. We need to relive the first. We need to live into the first. We are on the threshold of a new world. Never mind the fact that we’ve been on this threshold for over two thousand years. We are standing on the brink. We need to proclaim what is on the other side. What does it mean for Christ to take up residence in our world? What did it mean then, and what does it mean now? Those are the questions that even the casual attender has come to ask today.

During these worship services, you will have the opportunity to share your favorite Christmas Carols, to be sung on December 27th.

Series Information

Who doesn’t like Advent?

It is a season of excitement and anticipation and joy. Lots and lots of joy. Even when we acknowledge that we aren’t ready for what is coming, for the realm that is promised, for the kin-dom we hope for. We admit we have fallen short; we confess that we are wrapped up in ourselves and in things that don’t last; we admit that our watchful waiting has fallen by the wayside. And yet, in this season, there is joy.

And we have a sense that we can start all over again, because "Company Is Coming."
