Welcome to the great Season of Advent at Christ our Redeemer

We welcome your attendance and participation in this time of preparation for the second coming of Jesus and a time of remembrance and thanksgiving for his first coming.

He is a mighty savior and when love came down in the guise of a tiny baby, everything changed in the universe and beyond for all time, in all places, for all people - whether we are aware or not or even if we refuse to accept the change or the gift. 

As the prophets Isaiah said and John the Baptist quoted, 

"The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain: And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it."

Just a note:  During Advent we are using the 1662 Book of Common Prayer, on which our current eucharistic service is modeled. It is in an earlier form of English, so we have "thees" and "thous". In keep with that service, we are also using the King James Version of the Holy Bible.

Advent at Christ our Redeemer

10:00 AM Fourth Sunday in Advent, December 21 - Love comes down with the story of the Nativity.

Holy Eucharist with music - Pastor Tere Wilson, preaching

2 Samuel 7:1-11, 16; Magnificat-Luke 1:46-55; Romans 16:25-27; Luke 1:26-38 Collect: We beseech thee, Almighty God, to purify our consciences by thy daily visitation, that when thy Son our Lord cometh he may find in us a mansion prepared for himself; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Some thoughts from Anne Kennedy (theologian & mother of 6) "The great tragic coopting of the celebrating of the Incarnation, in which we celebrate that we were so far gone, that we had nothing to offer, that we were perishing, but that God himself had mercy on us and came to rescue us, that he gave his own life as a gift that we can never, and this is the kicker, repay, to make it about us and the gifts that we give and the cheerfulness that we have, is another perfectly satanic subversion. It’s as ironically foul as Planned Parenthood’s black lives matter hashtag farce. And we all trot along, Christian and pagan together, feeling happy about how good we are."
