About this Episode

Sunday, November 25, 2018 | Advent: Come Thou Long-Expected Jesus | While department stores pipe in "Holly Jolly Christmas," the Church in Advent sings, "Come Thou long-expected Jesus, born to set thy people free." While every radio station plays "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" on repeat, the Church in Advent sings, "From our fears and sins release us, let us find our rest in Thee!" Set in a minor key, no sleigh bells ringing, this song bids us toward the One for whom we are all longing, the Savior for whom all creation yearns. Michelle preaches from Isaiah's song in Chapters 8 & 9 in a sermon entitled "Born to Set Thy People Free." The band leads us in "I Wait" and our theme song for Advent, a contemporary version of "Come Thou Long-Expected Jesus."
