Advent and Christmas
 
      The Christian Church uses regular seasons to remember all the important parts of God’s word and of God’s plan of salvation. For the past six months, we have been in the season of Pentecost focusing on the life of the Church in Christ.  On Sunday, December 1st, we began a new church year and return again to the life of Christ.  Advent, the first season of the Church year, focuses on the promised coming of Christ at His Incarnation (Christmas), how He comes to us now in Word and Sacrament and how He will come again in His Second, and final, coming.
      This year our midweek Advent services will be entitled "News of the Savior" based on selected sections of Luke 1. Our mid-week services will look at Gabriel the angel and his visit to Zechariah, Zechariah's discipline in naming John the Baptist and, finally, we'll look at Mary, the Mother of God.
      The return of Advent and Christmas is a refreshing reminder of the beautiful way in which God comes into this world to bring salvation, hope and joy.
       But let's never forget, Jesus had to be born on a woman to be what the Father wanted Him to be, our substitute and Savior.  In other words, Jesus was born to die, to give His life as a ransom for many.  So, while celebrating Christmas, we must remember that the baby born in Bethlehem would live his life for us, suffer for us and die for our salvation.  Enjoy the birth of our Savior.  Pastor Bremer
