Advent Tabernacle

Each year during Advent Riverside takes four weeks to lean into the miracle of the incarnation of Christ—how in Christ God took on flesh and dwelt among us. And considering Riverside has spent all of 2022 going through the book of Exodus, this gives us a wonderful opportunity to connect the tabernacle in Exodus—the space where God dwelt among his people in the Sinai wilderness—to the coming of Jesus Christ, God taking on flesh and quite literally tabernacling among us (John 1:14).

So we will approach Advent this year looking through the physical elements of the tabernacle space. We see how God has always revealed himself through these elements, and how each element represents something of the character of God most fully embodied in Jesus—God incarnate.

Looking forward to this Advent journey with you!
