Right now, we're between Christmas and New Year's day, between two holidays. It's sort of an awkward time, because you don't want to go back to work, and yet it's a week inbetween with football and other things not normally seen in most weeks...and yet, it is a full business week with government offices and businesses mostly open.
However, spiritually, we are between two Advents in our lives as Christians: between Christ's first and second comings. And in that time frame, we must live as believers in Christ: in the Spirit until Jesus comes back. Listen to how we should do that in Pastor Michael Hodge's sermon for today.
Also, Katharine Spencer played "O Come, O Come Emmanuel" for us, and we have that recorded here too for your listening pleasure. To listen to them, click here:
We hope you are blessed by these recordings, and that you had a blessed Christmas. And from all of us here at Grace to your family, we pray God's blessings on you in 2013!
