The Sound of Silence

This week we will continue to prepare our hearts for the coming of the Christ Child. After Malachi wrote down the final word of the last Old Testament book, God went silent for 400 years. Most people are not very comfortable with an extended period of silence. We are used to noise, action and sound-bites that tend to drown out the still, small voice of the Spirit. But silence can be a good thing. Let’s be still and settle into this quiet season of waiting. Let’s stop our incessant talking and listen for a while.

See you in church!

Songs we’re singing this week:

8:00 a.m. — “Lift Up Your Heads, Ye Mighty Gates” and “Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus”

10:30 a.m. — “My Soul Magnifies the Lord”, “The First Noel” and “A Christmas Alleluia”
