Advent - Coming Soon - Setting the Scene
As we continue deeper into the “Coming Soon…” theme of Advent and Christmas this year, we encounter our first key character in the unfolding drama of Jesus’ coming. While waist deep in the Jordan river, the voice of John the Baptist calls out to us. His task is not to draw attention to himself – but to point us to the one who is at the center of this story, and to prepare for the one who is greater.
