We have spent a year in the Sermon on the Mount, considering what a life of flourishing looks like. This life is the life of the Kingdom of God. Jesus was born to be the King who brings the Kingdom. Advent is the word for arrival. We are celebrating the arrival of our King. And with his arrival comes God’s rule and reign in everyday life. As we come to King Jesus and submit to him as our king, his kingdom is experienced and expressed through his people. The King has come in Jesus. The Kingdom is here through his people.
During Advent, we will look at how our King came and what his Kingdom is like. Then, we will ask those who have experienced Jesus’ kingdom, how we can express his rule in everyday life. We will especially focus on how we might do that amongst foster children and foster families.
