This week kicks off our Advent celebration, pointing to 5 of the titles that the baby in the manger would fulfill as he grew. We ask that our people begin reading the opening pages of the Advent devotional, setting the stage for our first look at the Christ child from an unexpected perspective. In this first week, we wonder out loud - Mary, did you know that your baby is a warrior? We will spend much time Sunday morning gaining insight from the beloved but often misapplied story of David and Goliath in 1 Sam 17. Please read the entire chapter to refamiliarize yourself with one of the most exciting accounts in the entire Scriptures.
