  2. Help comes for those who cannot help themselves. When we bottom-out and come to the end of ourselves, that is where hope springs.
  3. For Christians, Advent is the time when the Church patiently prepares for the coming of the Great King, Jesus the Christ.
  4. The Church stands firm on the word of promise that Christ will one day return to change what we know by faith into sight.
  5. God Doesn’t Do Prophet-sharing. In this episode, we discuss Gerhard von Rad’s explanation of a prophet’s freedom and lack of choice regarding his call and proclamation.
