Honest Advent: Vulnerable - Everything You Need for Sunday
As my friend’s brother grew up, he claimed that he remembered his own birth. He joined a Myspace group of people who have that same claim. I’m not sure I ever believed him. He said he remembers feeling intense pressure on his head! Makes me laugh! Anyway, there’s this beautiful line in the Psalms that says to God, “You knit me together in my mother’s womb”, This incredible picture of God not only carefully and wonderfully creating us, but also working in tandem with our mother’s bodies. Remember last week that we talked about John’s gospel and how he speaks about Christ being there at the beginning and all things were made with Him and through Him. Now, take a moment to realize that this very God also entered a womb, was knit together, just like you and I, and depended on his mother’s body just as vulnerably as anyone else. What is the most powerful thing an all-powerful God can do? Become vulnerable. And that’s what God did so that He could be with us. More on that this Sunday! And we’ll be having a midwife (Alyssa Wiens) share with us what actually happens when we are “knit together in our mother’s womb”.

In-person Sunday School!
We have in-person Sunday School for kids aged 4-12 with our amazing teacher, Alissa! Sunday School will be held after our worship time.
This weekend in Sunday School we will finish up our stories about the people who trusted God in the Old Testament! We will be talking about the story of Jonah who was called by God to save the people of Nineveh. Because Jonah did not obey God at first, he was swallowed by a huge fish and stayed there for three days! Eventually, the whale spat him out and Jonah went to deliver the message. Jonah learned that he had to trust that the word of God was good even when he didn’t believe it. This will help us learn that it is so important to trust the word of God, even when it's the hard but good thing to do.
If you have any questions, or if there is any way that Alissa can support your family in discipling your children at home, please contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
That's all you need to know for this Sunday. May God richly bless you as you worship together this Sunday!
