Yesterday was our final Sunday before the start of Advent, which begins next Sunday. The idea behind the flow and text of our worship was to highlight the magnificent, almighty, matchless name of Christ – with the heavenly attributes that the saints and angels sing of, in order to contrast that with the simplicity of His arrival – a birth in a manger under the stars.
We opened yesterday with Awake My Soul.
After our call to worship we sang Lay Me Down, I Am, To Him, and No Other Name
Our offering song was Mercy from Matt Redman – which i introduced a couple weeks ago. I love the final chorus “May I never lose the wonder, oh the wonder of Your mercy….”
As we head into advent, and read the scriptures that are so full of wonder and astonishment over the events leading up to Christ’s birth, my hope is that we’re able to experience that same wonder as we wait on His return.
