Advent Living - Living Joyfully in a World of Sorrows

Pastor Wayne Braun's message on Sunday, December 16, 2018, was entitled, "Living Joyfully in a World of Sorrows" from Philippians 4:4-5 “Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!  Let your reasonableness be known to everyone.  The Lord is at hand.”  

Joy seems such a rare commodity in today’s world. Ironically this is especially true at Christmas time--the season of Joy.  Could it be that we sense that we are alone--that God is not with us?  Well, Paul puts that to rest.  No matter the circumstances in life, God is near.  That is the message of Christmas--Jesus is Immanuel--God is with us.  Joy, is the fruit of God’s Spirit--the fruit of God’s presence in our lives.
