“Big Stories”

Dear Church,


On this second Sunday in Advent we will leave the “Big Stories” series and focus on a more traditional Advent text – Luke 3:1-6.  In this short passage John the Baptist summarizes his calling with bracing clarity:  My job is to prepare the way for the coming of Messiah (the coming of God!).  


There are many reasons why humans aren’t really sure that we want God to come NOW.  On Sunday we will consider some of our ambivalence and remind ourselves that doubt is fine, but that God loves us regardless and will assuredly come.  


Amen!  Come, Lord Jesus.


See you Sunday!
