Joy is a state that is not dependent on health or illness. It is a sense of well-being and satisfaction that overlooks everything else and focuses on one thing only! The divine services give such a special impetus—even in the midst of the pandemic.

The services in December explore the topic “The coming Lord”, which is also the case on the fourth Sunday of Advent. The congregations are called to: “Rejoice! The Lord is near!” And this can be summarised as follows: The joy of the Christian is not dependent on any specific mood or conditions of life. It has its source in the nearness of the Lord, which is manifest in the hope and firm certainty of the imminent return of Christ and of eternal life in the new creation, as well as in the experience of Christ’s activity in His church and in our lives.

Also on the fourth Sunday of Advent the Church will offer online services.
