Second Sunday of Advent: Changing the Landscape

This week we celebrated the second Sunday of Advent.  Our community is in the midst of an Advent and Christmas series focusing on Awesome Deeds We Do Not Expect. 

The message for the second Sunday of Advent focused on the following Scriptures (particularly the ones in bold font):   Psalm 85:1-2, 8-13; Isaiah 40:1-11; Mark 1:1-8; 2 Peter 3:8-15a

The message – Changing the Landscape (click on the title to be connected to the message) addressed whether we are willing for God to change the landscape of our lives.  Do we want God to change the landscape in front of us to make open roads for us so that our lives are fulfilling, or are we willing for the Spirit of God to remove barriers within us, to change the landscape within our lives so that God has unimpeded access into the center of our lives – in order to transform us, shape us, lead us?
