Advent begins! Join us for worship during Advent as we consider what it means to move – from urgency to peace; from despair to hope; from dependence to love; from fear to joy. Our biblical texts will come from the prophet Isaiah and from the Gospel of Luke.
We begin this week as we move from Urgency – (Shopping on “Black Friday”?) to the Peace of hearing the words resonate deep within us: Comfort! Comfort, my people. The text is from Isaiah 40:1-11. We will hear once again the words of this text set to the music of G. F. Handel. “Comfort, O comfort my people, says your God. Speak tenderly to Jerusalem … Every valley will be exalted and every mountain and hill be made low.”
