ADVENT 2018


 

The expectation of having a baby changes everything.   New parents shift how they think, how they feel, how they act, how they see the world, and what they want for the future.   They open themselves to a new life and a new love.  As the community of faith, we are the family that welcomes Jesus.  We are eager to make our hearts into a ready home for him!    Advent means “coming”.  During this season are filled with expectation for the coming of the Christ Child.

The Sunday Lectionary  is a three-year cycle of weekly readings.   This lectionary is built around the seasons of the Church Year. During most of the year, the lections are: a reading from the Old Testament, a Psalm, a reading from the Epistles, and a Gospel reading. 

 

The  Daily Lectionary expands the range of biblical reading in worship and personal devotion. These readings complement the Sunday readings: Thursday through Saturday readings help prepare the reader for the Sunday ahead; Monday through Wednesday readings help the reader reflect on and digest what they heard in worship.
