“You who bring good news to Zion,
go up on a high mountain.

You who bring good news to Jerusalem,
lift up your voice with a shout,
lift it up, do not be afraid;
say to the towns of Judah,
Here is your God!'”
– Isaiah 40:9
RENEW: An Advent Journey to Renew Peace, Hope, Joy and Love

Advent is a time of preparation for our hearts and minds for the anniversary of the Lord’s birth celebrated on Christmas. It is also a reminder of the promise of Jesus Christ to come again in His full and complete glory.

Using Isaiah 40 as a framework for Advent we will take a journey to renew our understanding of the Advent words: Peace, Hope, Joy and Love.
