Advent 1: Home longing, December 3

Christmas in Australia is full of festivities, fun and families. But not for everyone. Life for many is weighed down by boredom, sadness and meaninglessness. Whatever our life experience, Christmas stirs up intense emotions that can be described as a longing for home. That is why we put so much energy into our traditions or gift-giving and try to create at space we can call home.

This Christmas we explore the profound reality that God in Jesus made his home among us and invites us to be at home with him.

Snr Pastor Stephen Baxter, Isaiah 11:1-10
