1st Sunday in Advent

Posted on Updated on

Originally delivered on December 2, 1990

Readings: Isaiah 63: 16-17. 19; 64:2-7; Corinthians 1:3-9; Mark 13:33-37

At the beginning of Advent, we are, in effect, saying thank you Jesus and come again among us. He comes and renews us in each Eucharist and when two or three are gathered in His name.  Advent is a time to acknowledge God’s presence in our lives which gives us strength to carry on.  But it is also a time to remember that we should be on guard and ready for HIs coming again.  At the time of the original delivery, the US was weighing the possibility of the Gulf War.  We are asked to consider how our political enemies are also people of God.
