Advent - Week One: Interruption

Advent - Week One: Interruption

As we prepare for the sacred season of Advent, we invite you to pause and join us in rhythms of reflection on the coming of our Savior. Over the coming weeks, we will consider our renewed call to be radically changed by the arrival of Jesus into the world; a divine interruption. We pray that this collection of music, prayer, and meditation would be a blessing and encouragement to you this week.


Our beloved brother Gideon Tsang joined us once again, asking the question of what it means to be rooted. As Christ remains (roots) in us, we must ask: Where are our lives rooted? With whom are we rooted? What resistance do we feel towards planting ourselves fully where God has placed us? May God speak to you uniquely through this invitation to stillness, contemplation, and participation.

In Search Of What's Been Lost

Pastor Chris Seay continues our conversation from last week; sharing stories of hope from the migrant caravan in Mexico City, and looking ahead toward what we pray will be a deeply transformative season of Advent. As we seek to be a people who worship fully, spend less, give more, and love all, what might we rediscover as we give ourselves fully to the invitation of these sacred weeks of anticipation and longing?

Hope Responds

Pastor Sean Palmer invites us to consider what it means to respond in hope, focusing on the model of Jesus to be known for what we are for and not simply what we are against.

We also hear from Pastor Chris Seay, who shares stories and a message of hope from Mexico City, where thousands of migrant travelers rested on their journey to escape violence and oppression in Central America. As Ecclesia answers an invitation to show hospitality and love to these brothers and sisters, where are the places in our lives where we can enter in and bring hope into the darkness?

Hope Is Certain

Pastor Chris Seay continues a conversation we began last week on the vitality of hope in our journey with God and one another. When we have a living hope, we can trust in God’s plans even in times of difficulty and despair, gain vision for a long and unfolding story, and open our hearts in greater gratitude and worship as God meets and sees us where we are.

Hope In The Fire

Pastor Wayne Brown taught from the story of God encountering Moses in a burning bush. As Moses draws closer, God calls Moses by name and calls him into a new adventure with a promise that he will never leave him. In similar fashion, Jesus breathes the Holy Spirit on his disciples with the new mission to boldly forgive the sins of others. Where might God be calling us to encounter Him this week?
