The angels that appear in the story of Jesus’ birth would have been very comfortable in our world of tweets and hashtags. Their messages were often short and to the point–their favorite line being #DoNotBeAfraid. As we look at the stories of these winged messengers to Zechariah, Mary, Joseph and the shepherds, and their reactions to them, we will contemplate what messages we can offer that will counteract a culture of fear and bring #morehope, #morepeace, #morejoy, and #morelove to the world.

This five week Advent worship series will begin on Sunday, Dec. 3.

December 3–Make Ready a People: #morehope

December 10–Nothing is Impossible: #morepeace

December 17–Do Not Be Afraid: #morejoy

December 24–This Will be a Sign: #morelove

December 31–Get Up and Go: #morelife
