9780788026812: They All Were Looking for a King: Advent/Christmas/Epiphany, Cycle C

Sometimes we avoid the biblical prophets because all we hear is their piercing jeremiads. Yet if we take the time to meet them in their historical context, the prophets bring us back to divine messages we desperately need.
-- from the chapter titled "A Dance in the Desert"

In this volume of sermons prepared by Wayne Brouwer, the reader will find illustrations that help to explain God's message in new and interesting ways. Finding stories and word pictures that more easily tie into the lectionary readings for each Sunday will help the person in the pulpit make his sermon more compelling to the people in the pews.

In They All Were Looking for a King, the author brings the reader new insights to the age-old message surrounding the birth of Christ. As Christians eagerly anticipate the arrival of the babe of Bethlehem, Brouwer explores the gospel from new perspectives that the reader will find to be invaluable. These messages will be helpful in a variety of ways:
· Illuminating illustrations and sermon starters
· Group Bible study
· Personal devotions

Sermon titles included in this collection are:
· A Cry in the Dark
· A Dance in the Desert
· Creating Community the Hard Way
