Listen to Pastor Amy Mark speak about hope in the Advent series titles, “The Gifts Of Christmas”. Hope involves waiting for something good.
“All working creatively together, for the good of all, all the time”.
See Genesis 2:7
“The gift of Hope at Christmas is this: Restoration to full communion with God and God’s creation (self, others, planet) where all work creatively together for the good of all, all the time.”
See Luke 1:35
“…The Holy Spirit overcame her…”
See Luke 1:46-55 (Mary’s Song)
Jesus shows us through His later example the importance of the good of all, which requires sacrifice.
