Advent: Something's Brewing Part 2
Posted by VCC on December 15, 2019 at 1:31 PM

This morning we are finishing our two part series coupling together Advent and what we believe God is presently doing with us. We see both prophetically in our series title Something’s Brewing. It highlights the fact that “something’s up”. Surfs up! We sense God’s movement, His leading, and see His activity. As we have pointed out, Advent simply means “coming”. It’s the Latin form of the word “Parousia” in Greek often used to highlight Jesus’ coming again. …from the time of Bernard of Clairvaux (d.1153), Christians have spoken of the three comings of Christ: in the flesh in Bethlehem, in our hearts…and in glory at the end of [the age]". In this last part of our series we see how at Advent Jesus satisfies the seeking heart.

Advent: Something's Brewing Part 1
Posted by VCC on December 8, 2019 at 1:02 PM

This morning we will be embarking on a two part series coupling together this season of Advent, the weeks in preparation of Christmas and what we believe God is presently doing *with us. We see both prophetically in our series title. Something’s Brewing, a phrase God gave me many weeks ago, to highlight the fact that “something’s up”. Surfing We sense God’s movement, His leading, and see His activity. As we have pointed out, Advent simply means “coming”. It is the Latin form of the word “Parousia” in Greek often used to highlight Jesus’ coming again. Philip H. Pfatteicher, formerly a professor at East Stroudsberg University, notes that "since the time of Bernard of Clairvaux (d.1153), Christians have spoken of the three comings of Christ: in the flesh in Bethlehem, in our hearts daily, and in glory at the end of time". So in this first part of our series we’ll look at an aspect of John the Baptist’s life, recognizing that *both he and we have been born with a purpose distinctly tied to the coming of the Lord.
