Advent Change: Sing for Joy

But, if we want the benefits of singing for joy ALL…THE…TIME, we’ve got to figure out ways to sing for joy throughout the year. So…we can, we should, take the momentum of the Christmas season and carry it forward by establishing regular patterns that will help us sing for joy as God intends…and live the most abundant, contented, lives possible.

God’s Party Calendar

I recommend that we, First Christian Church, add some CELEBRATING into our calendar. Celebrating is FUN. Celebrating is a reminder that God wants this Church thing to be more enjoyable than JUST a bunch of hard work. And celebrating provides for evangelistic opportunities. Our guiding scripture for this sermon series, Acts 2:42-47, describes the very first Church in what sound to me a lot like partying terms, and, the description ends with the words, “And day by day the Lord added to their number those who were being saved.” It sounds to me like coming together to have some fun and enjoyment might actually be attractive to people outside the Church. What we do here can’t be ALL partying, for sure, but it should include at least SOME partying.
