|He will come again in glory|
It's now September, which means that Advent, followed by Christmas, is not far away. It's likely that those who lead the church in worship are already preparing. This post may be of help.
The Advent/Christmas season celebrates, in this order: the future, present and past "comings" of the incarnate Son of God, our Lord Jesus Christ ("advent" is from Latin "adventus," which means "coming"). These celebrations begin a new cycle in the church's annual worship calendar in much of Western Christianity.
For an incarnational, Trinitarian perspective on the meaning of this season, together with other resources to help with preparation, see the past issue of GCI's Equipper e-magazine that is posted at www.gci.org/files/Equipper6.11.pdf (note: this year, November 30 is the first Sunday of Advent and December 21 is the fourth).
|He came in the flesh, and through the Spirit continues to come|
