Welcome

WELCOMES YOU!!

The Third Sunday of Advent


The presence of the Lord "in your midst" in the wonder of the holy supper is cause for singing.  The nearness of the Lord in prayer, in every circumstance, is cause for rejoicing.  The coming of one "more powerful" than John, even with his winnowing fork in his hand, is good news----and cause for exultation----for us who are being saved.  Great joy is the tone for the third Sunday of Advent.

Readings

Zephaniah 3:14-20

The prophet Zephaniah's mesage is mostly one of judgment for sin.  This reading, however, which comes from the conclusion of the book, prophesies joy for Judah and Jerusalem, Judgment has led to repentance, and God's salvation is at hand.

Philippians 4:4-7

Depsite being in prison, Paul is remakably upbeat as he writes this letter.  Here, he urges his friends in Philippi to trust God with all their worries and concerns, with the hope they will experience God's joy and peace.

Luke 3:7-18

John the Baptist heralds the mighty one "who is coming."  John teaches that preparation for God's reign is not a matter of identity but of bearing fruits of merciful justice, radical generosity, and vocational integrity.
