A new Advent sermon series for 2012, “Voices from the Edge: Advent Encounters Preparing the Way” includes sermons for the four weeks of Advent, Christmas Eve, and Christmas Day. Written by preacher and Concordia Seminary professor, Dr. David Schmitt, the series is built around the theme of Advent encounters. Every week, in engaging the Scriptures, someone on the edge of this world’s ways (John, John the Baptizer, Zephaniah, and Paul) will speak and what is said will change the way God’s people live in the world.
The sermon series is intended for midweek services, but could be used for Sunday mornings as well. Each Advent week includes liturgical and sermon studies, Bible readings, hymns, and full sermon manuscripts. Christmas Eve and Day include full sermon manuscripts only.
In addition, the .pdf file includes links to fine art especially selected by Schmitt for each week’s theme. All the artwork is in the public domain and is perfect for service folders, PowerPoint slides, and the like.
