“Advent, like its cousin Lent, is a season for prayer and reformation of our hearts. Since it comes at winter time, fire is a fitting sign to help us celebrate Advent…If Christ is to come more fully into our lives this Christmas, if God is to become really incarnate for us, then fire will have to be present in our prayer. Our worship and devotion will have to stoke the kind of fire in our souls that can truly change our hearts. Ours is a great responsibility not to waste this Advent time.” Edward Hays, A Pilgrim’s Almanac
When faced with the impossible, how can we respond? The text for the second Sunday of Advent is Luke 1:46-56 and Matthew 1:18-25. (You can read them here.) Join us at 10:30 on Sunday, December 8th for spiritual worship that doesn’t require anyone to check their brain at the door.
Our journey to Bethlehem begins today with a word from the prophets. Speaking to another people in another place and time, the prophet Isaiah speaks anew to those who follow Jesus. Just as the prophet gives voice to the hope of God to the Israelites of the past, he gives hope to us in a new era filled with new challenges and fears. Hear the words anew! Hear the still speaking God’s through our holy scriptures.
“The people walking in darkness have seen a great light. On those living in a pitch-dark land, light has dawned.” Isaiah 9:2 CEB
