Advent-Epiphany 2015

Advent 2015 (4 of 6) by David Flowers

Sermon Series:  Freedom Bound -- Advent to Epiphany 2015
Sermon Title:  The Path of Love (4 of 6)
Scripture Reading:  Isaiah 16:5; Luke 1:39-56; John 3:16-17

The Advent season is a time of reflection on how God's coming in Jesus releases us from personal, social, and historical chains that bind us. The theme for this Advent-Epiphany season is "Freedom Bound." We live in the paradox that we are both bound and free, on a march to freedom but encumbered by the burden of sin we carry; we are carrying the scars of struggle but living with a new hope. God's freedom takes us down pathways of justice, mercy, trust, love, service, and inclusion.

In The Path of Love (4 of 6), pastor David shows how Jesus reveals God’s liberating love by scattering the proud, raising up the lowly, and filling the hungry.
