The American public continues to be fascinated with superheroes. But when you think about it, who fills that role better than Jesus? Our new seven-part preaching series begins the Sunday before Thanksgiving ("Thank God for a Hero Too Wonderful for Words"), continues through the four Sundays of Advent, includes a Christmas Eve or Christmas Day message, and concludes on New Year's Sunday ("Watch the Sky for Your Superhero's Return").
