The Second Sunday of Advent

6 December 2020


John called people to repent, to clear the decks, to completely reorder their lives so that nothing would get in the way of the Lord’s coming. The reading from Isaiah gives the context for this radical call: the assurance of forgiveness that encourages us to repent; the promise that the coming one will be gentle with the little ones. Isaiah calls us all to be heralds with John, to lift up our voices fearlessly and say, “See, your God is coming!” We say it to one another in worship, in order to say it with our lives in a world in need of justice and peace.

First Reading: Isaiah 40:1-11

In grand, flowing, poetic lines, the prophet announces that the exile of God’s people in Babylon is over. The Lord will deliver Israel and will care for her as a shepherd cares for his sheep. This word can be trusted, because the only enduring reality in life is the word of the Lord.

Lighting of the Advent Wreath

Light two candles to watch for Messiah:  Let the light banish darkness.  He shall feed the flock like a shepherd, gently lead them homeward.

Second Reading: 2 Peter 3:8-15a

This short letter deals with pressing concerns regarding the final advent of Jesus, especially concerns that could arise over its apparent delay. The author of the letter calls on Christians to anticipate the promised coming of the Lord through conduct dedicated to God.

Gospel: Mark 1:1-8

The Gospel of Mark does not begin with a story of Jesus’ birth but with the voice of one crying out in the wilderness: Prepare the way of the Lord.

  • Rising from the Ashes

    Several weeks ago we reported about the quilts and kits that the Lutheran congregations send to Lutheran World Relief (LWR) to be sent to third world countries.  The deadly explosion of August 4 in Beirut had many of the LWR heads whirling in the last couple of months.  Three containers of quilts and kits were in the port awaiting customs clearance on the day of the blast.  The reports came out that the containers could not have survived.

    On the morning of August 26, LWR received an urgent update that they been given access to the port and against all odds, the containers were intact!  LWR learned on September 22 that despite the magnitude of the blast, the seal of the containers containing the LWR Mission Quilts and Kits was not broken.  The placement in the port, inside a concrete storage building and surrounded by other shipping containers, protected the containers enough to even prevent chemical contamination.

    We give thanks to God that the love of hundreds of Lutheran congregations contained in this shipment will be able to be shared with more than 24,000 of our neighbors in Beirut and across the country of Lebanon - many refugees from across the region, and now also those affected by the blast in the heart of Beirut.
