Today Jesus invites us to eat His flesh and drink His blood. It is here in St. John's gospel that we find not an institution of the Lord's Supper, but an invitation to commune with our Lord in an intimate way, abiding in Him as He abides in us.

The First Sunday in Advent

December 1, 2019

On the first Sunday in Advent, we hear warnings of what is to come. Advent is a time to prepare not only for the celebration of Christ's birth, but for Christ's coming again. No one knows when this will be, but we are called to live every day as if our Lord were returning now.

The Second Sunday in Advent

December 8, 2019

John the Baptist is at the heart of Advent. John calls us to repentance, to humility and faithfulness. He tells of the One to come, the Root of Jesse, who will welcome all into His glorious kingdom. We are sent from our worship to tell the world that in Christ, the kingdom of God has come near.

The Third Sunday in Advent

December 15, 2019

The third Sunday in Advent is always a time for rejoicing. Isaiah announces that the desert shall blossom and Jesus points to the signs of God's presence. We rejoice at His presence among us in Word and Sacrament, in prayer and forgiveness, in devotion and works of justice.

The Fourth Sunday in

Advent

December 22, 2019

Today we hear the story of the birth of the one Isaiah prophesied - Emmanuel, God-with-us. Matthew highlights Joseph's role in this miraculous birth - his faithfulness and love toward God and Mary. In just two days our celebration begins!
