This Week at Worship

Friday greetings to you. We gather at worship this Sunday, 9:30 a.m. at St. James, 11 a.m. at Trinity to be in community with one another, to sing, to pray, to listen as we give God our worship. Please join us this Sunday, the Third Sunday of Advent.

 

Our scripture readings are from the Book of Isaiah, Chapter 12, verses 2 through 6 and the Gospel of Luke, Chapter 3, verses 7 through 18. Our reading from Isaiah speaks of joy - that we are called to sing with joy, live with and for joy. Our Gospel reading picks up from last week when we read verses 1 through 6. The overall reading relates to the ministry of John the Baptist who announces the good news that the Messiah is coming. If you read this text in advance of Sunday worship (or you hear it on Sunday morning), you may think there is no joy here - it's all judgement. Indeed, John refers to the crowds who came out to be baptized by him as "You brood of vipers." That is not exactly a term of endearment. There is great joy in this text - God meets us where we are and works to transform us into a more "holy" life. Let us explore God's Living Words for us this Sunday.

 

If you are looking for something to do tonight (Friday, December 14) head on over to Trinity Kars for a showing of the film, "The Grinch who Stole Christmas." Showtime is 7 p.m. Free admission, cash canteen, All are Welcome!

 

Please note next Sunday, December 23 is joint worship at St. James, 9:30 a.m. Our service is a Festival of Lessons and Carols with the Sacrament of Holy Baptism.

 

May you have a wonderful weekend. See you Sunday.
