The Third Sunday of Advent-
Sunday, December 16, 2018
Preparation for Christmas continues in this week’s scripture readings with a dominant mood of joyful expectation.
The reading from Zephaniah pictures a joyful Jerusalem, one that sees salvation on the horizon because God is in her midst.
In the reading from Philippians, Paul calls for his readers to rejoice in the Lord, who is at hand.
The apocalyptic dimensions of the Lord’s advent are stressed in the gospel as it summarizes the preaching of John the Baptist, concluding with the note that he “proclaimed the good news to the people”.
May God bless our worship.

A worship series entitled “Prepare the Royal Highway” continues with this week’s 5:00 p.m. Saturday Contemporary Praise Worship Service. Highways, pathways, gates and journeys figure prominently in the imagery of Advent. The sermon is provided by Pastor Bruce Kaifler.
