SERMON – Something Is Happening But You Don’t Know What It Is – Rev. Paul Dakin
SCRIPTURE: Matthew 3:1-12
ANTHEM: Night of Silence – Chancel Choir
On Jordan’s Banks the Baptist’s Cry (1736)
Charles Cofflin, 1676-1749
In preparation for Christ’s birth, and for his second coming, we are instructed to listen. Before we can prepare our hearts, we must know why and how we should do so. We must listen to the promptings of the Holy Spirit. We must sharpen our senses so that we are alive to the voice of God in our lives. As the hymn writer says, we must “awake and harken.”
If you would like to make a decision before this congregation, please come forward and inform the pastor during the singing of the last hymn.
