Our theme throughout Advent is “Creating Light in the Wake of the Storm.” And our first touchstone is PEACE.  How do we create light?  How do we pray for peace?  What does it mean to attend to peace in a world that has been and continues to be stormy, destructive, unjust?  Our scripture comes from Mark 13:24-37.  It is an apocalyptic scripture about the coming of the Messiah.  We will hold all these things in tension as we enter into this holy season.  The sermon title is “Standing Between Beauty and Terror.”
