Advent 3: Choose Joy

December 14, 2015 @ 8:13 pm

Ezra 3: 1-4, 10-13 is the text and again, I am indebted to the assistance I receive from Working Preacher/Narrative Lectionary.  Excellent help.  Rebuild the temple and some, who remember what the old temple was like, cannot be joyful.  I then contrast those Eeyores with Simeon in Luke 2 where he is able to see the possibility of the future.

Adent 2: Proclaim the Good News Because God’s Word Endures Forever

December 14, 2015 @ 8:09 pm

I relied this week a great deal on Working Preacher/Narrative Lectionary help.  The idea in this Isaiah 40: 1-11 on where the quotation marks are comes from them.  This is another call routine.  Here (the) Second Isaiah is saying I can't preach because the people are like grass and will wither.  And God says ... do it anyway.
