In the Gospel of Matthew, the nativity story of Jesus the Christ is filled with dreamers. Only because people dreamed was Jesus born and delivered into the world he came to serve. What does it look like to live as those who dream? The prophets, the psalmists, John the Baptist, Joseph, Mary, Zechariah, Anna, Simeon, the shepherds and the Magi—they were all dreamers. They received, discovered, and responded to God’s dreams for the world. In Advent, we step into the mystery and awe of God’s dreams and pray they shape our reality.
Our worship in Advent and Christmas is for the dreamers in all of us—those who dream of a deeper connection with God and those who dream of a better world. It’s for those who dream of comfort and for those who have given up on their dreams. It’s for those whose dreams have been crushed and for those who show us that dreams take time. Join us this Advent as we dream alongside prophets and angels, Joseph, Mary and the Magi. Join us as we seek and sow God’s dreams for our world.
