It was the third Sunday in Advent
and the theme was ‘Joy’
and the worship songs were chosen
Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee
and Joy to the World;
a testimony of joy was ready
and this painting of joy returning.

Two days ago 26 innocent children and teachers died.
Can we sing and talk and preach of joy?
We alter our prayers and pray more
and sing with a solemn kind of joy.
But in light of the Man of Sorrows
who was also the Man of Joy.
how can we not read the scriptures
and be called again to “fix our eyes on Him,
who for the joy set before him, endured the cross…”
(Hebrews 12)

Listen to the Sunday’s personal story and sermon here.
