Advent is all about the coming of light and hope into a dark and desperate world… when those who yearn in the midst of the dark see the light dawning there is much rejoicing. “The Weary World Rejoices” is our look at the book of Luke, the incarnation of Jesus, and the responses of those who have stood in deep darkness hoping for that wondrous light.
Advent 2017 at Stonehouse Church will focus on the four declarations made in response to the announcing and coming of Jesus. These four declarations are found in the first two chapters of the gospel of Luke. We'll look at Mary's Song, Zechariah's prophecy, the angel's song, and finally, Simeon's prayer. These declarations are responses to God’s glorious grace in sending his Son Jesus into our dark and hopeless world.
