Our Advent Sermon series is themed around hope. What does Hope mean to us today? Optimism? Positive thinking? Blind faith? What if hope could be more than that? And what if hope could be not just thrilling but life-changing? In our sermons over the next few weeks we will engage with the real hope of Christmas, through the four songs recorded in Luke’s Gospel. This week we study Mary’s song. In her reflection on the coming of the Messiah, Mary’s song focuses on God as a promise keeper (even though he takes his time in delivering on those promises). How does God’s promise keeping character enable us to have real hope?
Luke 1: 39-55
