What time is it? Are you ready? Could make you think of the kids game, What time is Mr. Wolf, and when heard in Scripture might also make you think of judgement. It all depends on how you say it. On this Sunday of Advent the texts are ones meant to lead us toward Hope... not just hope for us, but make us understand God's hope in us. Have you been longing for hope lately? This sermon is meant for you.(Isaiah 2:1-5; Romans 13: 11-14, Matthew 24: 36-44)
Do you ever have the feeling that you wish you didn’t take part in a moment of bullying, or had your heart feel heavy from not doing more to speak against something you knew was wrong? It can be a burden. In today’s scripture readings, Jesus reminds us it’s never too early and it’s never too late to choose the right path. (lectionary reading 1 Col 1:1-11 and Luke 23:33-43)
Trumps election win. Remembrance day celebrations. The destruction of the temple. Have you experienced a good dose of grief already this week? In the need of some hope? That is the purpose of this sermon and that is the purpose Jesus seeks to make in the lectionary reading (Luke 21: 5-19)... that sometimes when it almost seems like there's too much going on, that just may be the moment that a great hope is building up, that you are an important part in bringing about... but to make it happen, is a real 'coming of age' story.
