Worshipping With Others

AS WE GATHER during these weeks of Advent, our theme is “WITH.”  The prophet promised that the Messiah who was to come would be Immanuel—“God with Us.”  The truth that God is always with us is a miracle that provides us comfort and peace, hope and life.  Today in worship we understand that God meets us here as He promises to be with us in His Word and Sacrament.  We gather here with the Lord and each other, week after week, because we need what God offers, namely faith and forgiveness, life and salvation.
