December Worship and Preaching

          The scriptures for the seasons of Advent and Christmas are among the most familiar and inspiring.  Perhaps that is a reason why worship attendance is usually high in December.

          We begin the month with the Second Sunday of Advent on Dec. 7.  Isaiah spoke words of comfort to people who had been through an ordeal.  The passage is filled with promise, “every valley will be raised up” in anticipation and celebration of the coming of the messiah.

          The following week, Dec. 14, we turn to the gospel of John to meet “a man named John” who was “sent from God.”  John was clear with his role.  His task was to witness, to tell others about Jesus.  While many people embraced John’s message, as we have come to expect, the religious leaders did not.
