Inhabiting Advent

Advent-2012-Slide-Part1.jpg

Joshua and Preston kick off the Advent season by sharing the pulpit today.  Joshua teaches on the historical origins of Advent and on the cultural symbolism such as the Christmas tree and the Advent wreath found within the Advent season.  Preston then teaches on how we are to inhabit the season.  He suggests we give ourselves two permissions: permission to Sing, and permission to Groan; Practice two disciplines: Restraint and Retreat; And cultivate two postures: Alertness and Openness.
