First Sunday of Advent
Scripture includes: Jeremiah 33:14-16 and Luke 21:25-36
Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “Prophetic Hope”
God’s goodness toward humanity and covenant with Israel reminds us through the prophets that God doesn’t give up on us. No matter what we do, God’s promise is still yet on the horizon. A “righteous branch” will spring up, even in the midst of destruction. When we look back at the prophets of old, and look forward to the coming future with Christ, we realize just how amazing it is that God chose to come among us as a baby, an incarnate God, to live among us, suffer with us, and bring us hope for a better future.
Today is the First Sunday of Advent, the inaugural season of the Christian year. Advent is a time of spiritual preparation for the coming of Christ; thus, it is a season of both joyous and solemn expectation. The liturgical color is purple, symbolic of a spirit of preparation.

We light the Candle of Hope, and dare to open the dark places in our lives to the healing light of Christ. May our hearts be prepared for the coming of Christ and the creative, transformative power of hope.
