It’s Sunday, everybody! And I’m pretty sure the Kingdom of Heaven is going to touch down at Richmond’s First Baptist Church today. If you can’t join us in person, please join us for the live webcast online at http://www.fbcrichmond.org/webcast or for the live telecast on WRIC, channel 8, Richmond, both airing at 11:00 a.m.
We’ll light the fourth Advent candle today, the last one before Christmas. Lacey McRoberts will sing “How Far Is It to Bethlehem.” The children’s choir will sing “Wrapped in Light, Wrapped in Love.” And we’ll all join in on “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing.” Eventually I will preach a sermon called “Oops!” (which you might have to hear just to figure out where the title came from).
It’s going to be a great morning and then, this afternoon, several of us are going over to Essex Village Apartments to bring a little heaven to earth there. Steve Blanchard says:
Festivities will begin at 3pm at Building 117 with refreshments, the 25 cent Christmas Yard Sale, and One Accord singing. The afternoon will be very informal but help is needed to set up items, monitor and collect during yard sale, help set out food, mingle with guests, pack and clean up, etc… If you can be there, it would be appreciated. I know it is a busy time and most of you volunteer a hundred other places but if you can, or know of someone else who can, volunteer, I look forward to seeing you there.
If you’ve been looking for a chance to experience heaven on earth, or to help bring the KOH2RVA, this could be it. Hope to see you in both places—first at church, and then at Essex Village!
