December 18, 2022 “Almost There, But Not Yet.” Rev. Ross Baker

Scripture: Matthew 1: 18-25.

Here is the link to this week’s service and message:

EUMC Sunday Service 12/18 – YouTube

This is odd, isn’t it? The last Sunday of Advent, yet there is a whole week until Christmas. May this extra time allow us a little breathing space to listen to Isaiah and to Matthew before we rush off to the exuberance and extravagance of Christmas. How do we refuse to participate in what God continues to do among us or around us? How are we missing the signs that God is at work even today? Matthew will help us claim and name the Christ who is born among us. We may have a bumper sticker declaring that “Jesus is the reason for the season,” but how are we bringing that to life? How are we acting like Jesus, like we believe that Jesus is indeed the reason? A neighborhood invitation to join you for Christmas Eve services is a start, but what else can you do to name the Christ who sends you, who transforms you, who makes you into the disciples that you are? Join us as we focus on the story of Joseph and how we are almost there, but not quite there just yet!
