Second Week in Advent

This is the second week in Advent, a time of preparing to celebrate the birth of Jesus.  Last weekend in my sermon at Mayfair-Plymouth Church I talked about The Annunciation (the  announcement of the angel Gabriel to Mary that she would, though a virgin, conceive and have a baby).  Mary said to Gabriel, “How will this be, since I am a virgin?”  I explained to the congregation that “Mary couldn’t conceive that she would conceive.”  Yes, it was a mystery to Mary, but she trusted God.  That’s what faith in God involves, trusting in God even when we don’t know what in the world (including our little world) He’s up to.
