4th Sunday of Advent

TRUSTING IN THE STORY

Over the past four weeks we have focused on our story as part of a much larger narrative.  We have recognized that our story is a generational one – a story that began long ago with people like Jacob who, for a time, fought with God, but then trusted himself to be lead into a new land and new relationship.

The stories of our ancestors is one of persistence – the kind that makes space for grace to complete the incomplete and real the unrealizable.

They are stories of impossibilities becoming possible because of the trust that they had in God and in each other.
