Our annual Carols and Candles Service at GracePointe!
THE THRILL OF HOPE – “The Promise of Hope”
Much like Mary, we carry the image of Christ within us.
While we do not physically carry Christ, we are the image of Christ to the world.
Thus, we are to sing songs of hope to the world around us.
THE THRILL OF HOPE – “The Generosity of Hope”
John the Baptist is redefining “kingdom”…
Out of our generosity,
the world might see and know a generous God
who left the riches of heaven so that we might be free of sin.
THE THRILL OF HOPE – “The Way of Hope”
Advent is about preparing the way for the Lord so that people might
See, Hear, and Know
the way of hope that the Lord offers to all who believe.
Prophets Speak Truth to Power, and John is a Prophet
We Need to Make Straight Paths for the Way of the Lord
The Way of Hope is the Way of Holiness
Christ came to show a new way. A way of hope, of healing, of holiness.
A Thrill of Hope – “The Anticipation of Hope”
The signs of the times announce justice and redemption.
Redemption is about hope, not fear.
It’s easy to miss the Messiah in our midst.
We move forward in hope for all to be made new,
even as things are already being made new!
