Greetings Liberty family & friends
As the busy Christmas season unfolds, we’re deeply blessed to welcome worshipers together to savor and explore the wonder of Immanuel, God with us.
Our second Sunday in Advent highlights the role that angels play as messengers from the realm of eternity.
In the wondrous visit of the angel Gabriel to Mary in Nazareth, the news of Immanuel reached the humblest of hearts. Her calling as a virgin in a betrothal of devotion to her future husband, Joseph, opens the window of eternity on the deepest need of every human heart. As a young expectant woman, Mary’s trust in the Word of the living God set in motion a life of trust that sparkles like a diamond to this very day. The speed of life and the stresses unique to the 21st century bring us our own unique opportunities to learn from Mary to say “Behold the servant of the Lord ~ may it be unto me according to Your Word!” (Luke 1:38)
Quick reminders of our Christmas season schedule
