Advent 2C: Uses RCL lectionary texts. Connects Isaiah/Malachi/John the Baptist "preparing the way" and "making the paths straight" with the second coming (Advent) of Christ and the mission of the Church. Meant as a 10-minute Eucharistic sermon.
Advent is a time for self-examination as we prepare for the coming of Christ. Today’s scripture lesson talks about John the Baptist, the greatest man ever born of women according to Jesus. His job was to prepare people’s hearts for the coming of Christ. From this passage, Matthew 3:1-12, we are reminded to conduct three important self-examinations frequently to live a fruitful life. Let's take a look and see how you can benefit from it.

Isaiah 40:1-5 Comfort for the Lord’s People Comfort, comfort my people, says your God.

Why use the Lectionary First an apologeia for using the Revised Common Lectionary It may be a mainline denominational thing but it is a good thing. Even evangelicals have rediscovered its advantages, Robert Webber for one. First: You preach the whole counsel of God, any preacher if they have to select…

Zechariah’s mouth was open, and he prophesied. In his announcement, he declared what God was doing through the messiah. We look at this to learn what Zechariah said, what the church learned, and what Advent calls us to consider.

Last week, Jesus gave us the first of our Advent reality checks. “In the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how…

ESV And this is the testimony of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, “Who are you?” He confessed, and did not deny, but confessed, “I am not the Christ.” And they asked him, “What then? Are you Elijah?” He said, “I am not.” “Are you the Prophet?” And he answered,…
