First Sunday of Advent – Year C

Then Jesus told them a parable: “Look at the fig tree and all the trees; as soon as they sprout leaves you can see for yourselves and know that summer is already near. So also, when you see these things taking place, you know that the kingdom of God is near. Truly I tell you, this generation will not pass away until all things have taken place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.

–Luke 21.29-33

  • Are you someone who’s constantly looking for a sign? Do you read events and people as omens of good or bad news?
  • Do you look at your future with fear or with hope?
  • What does the kingdom of God look like?
  • What words of Jesus do you need to hear today?

It’s the last week of classes, the first week of Advent, and another opportunity for us to gather together at Trinity Commons to sing some hymns, say some prayers, and join in fellowship and support at the table (both the altar and for dinner). It’s also going to be a night for us to decorate the student center for Christmas, so come ready to hang lights and ornaments on the tree, put up wreaths, and celebrate the life we share with God. We’ll have a very delicious supper thanks to our friend Georganne Perrine, so bring your friends, and I look forward to seeing you on Sunday at 6pm.

O Wisdom, proceeding from the Most High, teaching from one to another, mightly and sweetly ordering all things: come and teach us the way of understanding.
