This Advent season, we celebrate the story of Christmas from the perspective of some of the “smaller” characters. In this week’s message, we look at the story through the eyes of Simeon: an old man who was desperately holding onto hope that God would reach out in love to help a country that seemed to be going down the tubes. Throughout the series, we’ll reflect on our own personal stories in light of these characters and the impact they made in a much bigger narrative than they could possibly see or feel. We’ll remind ourselves that ordinary people like us, doing small things with great love, can change the world. And together we’ll embrace the traditional Advent themes to renew our hope that a world full of peace, love and joy is not only possible, but at hand!
