Isaiah 9:2, 6-7. On this third Sunday of Advent, we look at the situation of the shepherds and the wise men in the story of Christ’s birth.
2nd Sunday of Advent; Isaiah 40:9-11. When we think of the Incarnation, perhaps the best way to put it is, “When Love came down.”
We begin the Advent season with a reminder to hope in what we know, even if we can’t see it.
The angels come to the shepherds and announce news of a birth that causes joy. Consider with us the reasons for that joy.
Today we trace “The Progress of Hope” from the time of Isaiah to the first advent of Christ, to us in the church, and into the future to Christ’s second advent. This isn’t a hope we keep in our back pocket and pull out when times are glum–it’s a hope we live by daily!
