Second Sunday of Advent
Scripture includes: Isaiah 11:1-10 and Romans 15:4-13
Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “Grow Peace”
The Jewish people who had followed God for centuries, and from the “root of Jesse” a new leader would be born, a savior. And it’s this savior who teaches (and re-teaches) us how to live in peace with one another, not erasing differences, but learning to live in the kind of harmony God desires for us. Can we grow this kind of peace in our lives and in this world?
Today is the Second 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.
Advent Candle of Peace Lighting – FBC Kids Children’s Ministry
We light the candle of Peace, knowing full well that peace is elusive. May we trust that even where there is war and discord, God is never absent from us, but is always gently leading us to new possibilities.
