“The voice of one crying out in the wilderness:
‘Prepare the way of the Lord,
make his paths straight.
Every valley shall be filled,
and every mountain and hill shall be made low,
and the crooked shall be made straight,
and the rough ways made smooth;
and all flesh shall see the salvation of God.’”
– Luke 3:4-6
- Who in your life has prepared you to “see the salvation of God”?
- Are there things in your life that need to be straightened, filled, or made level to prepare you for a closer relationship with Jesus?
- This week, how can you point people toward the peace of God offered through Jesus?
This Sunday is the Second Sunday of Advent, and our readings invite us to consider the role that John the Baptist played in Jesus’ story. The story of John the Baptist reminds us that we are invited to join in the work of God’s salvation of the world. As exams finish up, join us this Sunday at Trinity Commons for hymns, prayers, and Eucharist. This Sunday will be our last Sunday Supper for the semester, and we will enjoy a great meal thanks to our friend Caitlin Lollar. We hope you will join us Sunday at 6 pm for a break from the hectic exam and holiday season.
“This was the oath he swore to our father Abraham, to set us free from the hands of our enemies, Free to worship him without fear, holy and righteous in his sight all the days of our life.”
