The sanctuary looks beautiful. I am especially grateful for the hours of preparation given by Rich and Coni Hoolsema, Jan Bos and Nancy Zylstra. It is my prayer that God will be glorified in all that we do as we celebrate this season. I look forward to celebrating our tenth advent season with you. Today marks the first day of the Christian church calendar. All over the world today the Christian church is beginning their celebrations of one of the most central truths of the Christian faith, that astonishing miracle when God became a man in the person of Jesus of Nazareth. Each advent season our worship planning team and I think and pray about a special theme to focus our thoughts in this season. This year our theme is Our Savior Comes. Advent is a great time to think about a Savior, after all advent is about our Savior coming into the world. There have been many great leaders in history who have done some great things. And some of those great leaders have taken for themselves some lofty titles. Alexander the Great and Herod the Great. Robert the Magnificent who was father of William the Conqueror. Richard the Lionhearted and Charles the Bold. But when the Son of God came to earth God said call Him Savior. His name shall be called Jesus because He will save His people from their sins. The name Jesus like its OT equivalent, Joshua, means the Lord saves. His name declares His mission on earth, His agenda. Jesus is the author of salvation.
