Pastor Tim leads off with a brief introduction and orientation to the Advent season at Community Church, and introduces the theme for the stories he's writing as we remember the coming and anticipate the second coming of Jesus!
Adam and Eve were the very first people to have to wait for Jesus. What was it like for them to experience brokenness and loss, knowing that they'd lost everything at the fall? What hope did they have?
Pastor Tim continues preaching through story by exploring the life of Abraham, and the promise of God's future blessing. What must it have been like to leave their land, country, their people to follow the Lord into... the unknown?
Pastor Tim continues storytelling through Advent and invites us to imagine the life of Moses -- but not during the great miracles and wondrous demonstration of God's power at the Exodus. No, this is a story from the end of Moses' life, as he is prevented from entering the promised land. What is it like to wait for God's promises when God's timeline is bigger than our own lifetime?
Pastor Tim concludes our Advent storytelling series with four snapshots of King David's life -- snapshots that remind us that while David was truly a man after God's own heart, God had promised an even greater King who would come; a king whose reign would last forever!
