Sermon Preview for The First Day of ADVENT | "When God Comes Down" | Doug Dortch | Hanging of the Green
“God is in His heaven,” the saying goes, “and all is right with the world.” I understand that the saying intends to convey how God is in control of everyday life, and I believe that truth beyond a shadow of a doubt.
