4th Sunday in Advent
St. Thomas, Apostle Day on the Church Calendar
It's our final Advent message. The Christmas week is here! Joy to the World! This morning the Advent devotion is "Engaged in Kingdom Building." The key verse is 2 Samuel 7:16.
Today is also St. Thomas Day. We'll say a prayer for St. Thomas Day to open the show, and close with a prayer for this Advent Sunday. Thanks for joining us!
9 am Sunday morning Divine Service for 12/21/14. Traditional liturgy and law gospel sermon. Pastor Housers’s sermon. First reading - 2 Samuel 7: 1-11, 16. Gospel - Luke 1:26-38. King David thinks he defeats Israel’s enemies and decides to build God a house - like his palace. However the reason Israel defeated their enemies was the hand of God. God did it for them so David wanted to do something for God. Works righteousness, idolatry, foolishness and vanity. (God didn’t ask David to build him a fancy temple.)
In the gospel, God dwells in Mary’s womb so He can take His place amongst us. It’s just Mary - nothing fancy. However the Lord favored her. The gospel is God doing the work for us - not the other way around. Jesus defeats the real enemies; satan, the world and our sinful human nature. He brings about our salvation and victory over sin.
We are continuing our interview with the youth of the KNOW ME no me Institute prayerful journey. Our minds are influenced by much as we strive to live our lives daily. We are praising Allah (G-D)(SWT)for all the benefits we receive and we pray that we are able to recognize these benefits. We are taking a personal stand to accept that " all sons of Adam are created honorable", and are not a cursed description to justify someone's cruel and inhumane treatment.
Imani Abdu-Shakoor;Isaiah Abdu-Shakoor;Jabril Abdu-Shakoor;Yusuf Abdu-Shakoor;Nathaniel Williams;Shamel Williams Perez;Samuel Williams Perez;Eric Jenkins and a variety of honored adults are what makes up The Know Me / no me Ins-stitute. Martha Nailah Williams, founder and director, all praises are due to Allah alone!
We are admonished to guard our hearts. This is vitally important in the world that we live in now. As we look around, we see all types of inputs coming at us that attempts to peck away at our foundation in God. It is the samll foxes that spoil the vine. How much of the world that we live in can we let in before it begin to chip away at our foundation? Or should our goal be to be of this world but not live according to it's dictates about what is right or wrong? How do some of us sometimes start off fighting the good fight of faith and end up shipwrecked on a backslidden island? We will discuss this and more, so join us for this word from God. .

in Self Help
Just listen to the music, and let your body move... Still not sure? Look at how the branches on the trees move in a wind... They don't try to do this step or that step... They just surrender to the breeze that moves them. Move like that... Move like the dust particles dancing in the light... Just surrender to the breath, and allow the movement that wants to move you ignite your spirit and dance with abandon...
