Advent and the Prayer for Deliverance

THE SEASON OF ADVENT started this past Sunday.  I had the opportunity to speak at a church in the area.  I used my moment to talk about story and promises and hope.  I’m not sure if it made much sense (things always sound better in my head).  Still, it was good to hear words from the weeping prophet, Jeremiah, as God reminded his people of his covenant with David: that a man from his line will sit upon the throne.  The first Sunday of Advent acknowledges the “not yet” part of that promise.

One of these days I’ll make it to the mainland early enough in December to catch the Behold the Lamb of God tour.  Here’s Derek Webb’s song from that production: “Deliver Us.”  It’s a nice way to kick off the season.

As our days are merry and bright, may we also be mindful.

  1. If you ever make it to the mainland to see it in Charlotte remember that you have free lodging available. 🙂
