Sermon: Simeon, Anna, and Expectation

IMG_3101“It Takes a Village: Simeon, Anna, and Expectation”

(November 29, 2015) Jesus was born into a community, a context, a village, and the people in that context and community are important. The prophets– from those of old like Jeremiah, to those contemporary and near-contemporary with Jesus like Simeon and Anna– expressed the people’s longing for Jesus, and his fulfillment of God’s promise. How do we serve as prophets today? (Jeremiah 33:14-16Matthew 3:1-6Luke 2:25-38)
