"The Audacity of Advent"
scripture: Isaiah 11:1-10; Matthew 3:1-12; Romans 15:4-13
"Advent makes new people," the famous theologian, Dietrich Bonhoeffer once wrote. In contrast to the shallow optimism of self-help, Advent reaches into the depths of our broken world with a defiant Hope that dares to proclaim that the forces of darkness and death do not have the last word: healing, love and life do.
