Passage: Isaiah 40:1-11
Spiritual Sunday — Happy 2nd Week of Advent!
On this second Sunday of Advent, as we think about the coming of Christ, we light the purple candle of peace. We take time to reflect on God's peace that he supplies to us without end in Jesus.
It is one thing to notice that there is work to be done. It is quite another one to determine that you are the one who needs to do that work! This week’s worship is about commitment. That could be hard when a large part of the congregation is still online. How do we get folks to commit to ministry when getting together is difficult? What does ministry look like in this pandemic era? These are some of the questions the worship team might consider answering, or at least making suggestions about this week.
Who doesn’t like Advent?
It is a season of excitement and anticipation and joy. Lots and lots of joy. Even when we acknowledge that we aren’t ready for what is coming, for the realm that is promised, for the kin-dom we hope for. We admit we have fallen short; we confess that we are wrapped up in ourselves and in things that don’t last; we admit that our watchful waiting has fallen by the wayside. And yet, in this season, there is joy.
And we have a sense that we can start all over again, because "Company Is Coming."
