Is there room for mercy in our conversations on fairness and justice? Mercy is love that responds to our need for restoration from wrongdoing and our need for provision from lack. Too often we withhold mercy from others and don’t expect God’s mercy for ourselves. What if this Advent – a season of waiting for Christ’s birth – we learned to expect mercy from God and show mercy to others? In our new series, ‘Expecting Mercy’, we’ll look at how God brings mercy close through Jesus’ birth and ministry in Luke’s Gospel. This Sunday, Josh will share how Luke introduces this story of mercy — the birth of Jesus’ cousin, John, and the call to repent.
