Sermon Notes

Lots of interference in this sound recording, but this is our last week in the fellowship hall now that the heater installation in the sanctuary is underway.  I won't be posting again until after Sunday, January 10th, so look for me then!  A blessed Christmas to you all!

This sliver of a quote from our online worship planning resource, Sundays and Seasons by Augsburg Fortress was the inspiration for a portion of my sermon...you'll know which bit when you hear it and will continue to weave through Christmas Eve preaching: "Cradle and Cross are inextricably connected..."

Oh, and a link to a beautiful Advent poem by Madeleine L'Engle.  And lots of other great poems too...
