Readings and stuff for Sunday (Dec 1)
I can’t believe it’s December and Advent at that.
Have a great Thanksgiving everyone.. God bless you all!!!
Don’t forget that next Sunday Col Mark DelVecchio will be visiting us at the 9:00 service with his family. Make them welcome.
Christa Tyner has made a special gift for them from the church!!
Vespers at 5:00 – our theme is HOPE
The readings this Sunday are both very beautiful and moving.
the final passage from Isaiah is the quotation which is at the base of the main statue outside of the United Nations building in New York:
And they will beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks, nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore."
That’s about as good as the Bible gets! Read it as if it’s the first time you’ve ever heard it – with wonder and awe.
In Romans we have one of the major themes of advent: "Let us them lay aside the works of darkness and put on the armor of light…" that’s what Advent is all about.
God bless you all and thank you for your ministries!!
