This will become a ‘gallery’ of FLC Advent this year, sharing sermons, some advent art we have done as a community, PT’s random thoughts, some of our music, and whatever else fits.
Gospel Lesson: Luke 21:25-36 (link to NRSV)
Theme: God is in the dark. Look close. The Light is there.
This was the first Sunday in Advent. It also (by random chance) was the evening that our Jewish siblings lit the first candle of the Chanukah menorah, which is a different tradition certainly but has a common thread of light scattering darkness. I started the day by seeing this on one of my feeds:
In the sermon, we reflect on Jesus’ strong command that when we begin to be afraid and may want to hide ourselves, we should “stand up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”
