worship (112920) 11am – it was not a silent night – beginning with the end

This Sunday is the first Advent Sunday. Time to remember that quiet, peaceful moment on earth when Jesus was born…hold on a minute! Was it really that quiet? Think about it. A stable full of smelly, noisy animals. Joseph running around trying to help. And Mary: she had her world turned upside-down. This Advent, let’s explore the chaotic world in which Jesus was born, and discover that the world back then wasn’t that different from the world we’re in now!
