1st Sunday of Advent
Psalm 46, paraphrased by Pastor William
With God, there is nothing to fear;
even if the earth shakes,
or the winds howl,
or the seas rise;
for God is with us.
Those who don’t know God are in trouble;
they stumble and fall,
they stir up fear and hatred,
they care only about themselves;
for they neglect and ignore God.
Notice the good God is doing all around;
life is renewed,
trees are planted,
hatred becomes love,
fear turns into joy;
for God desires excellence for us.
God is our king, our ruler, our guide;
For we reside with God.
