Sunday to Monday / Get Prepared

"Back to the basics..." - Van Morrison

It was a great day of worship, the 2nd Sunday in Advent. Advent - a time of anticipation, hope, expectation, and urgently waiting. And, a time of preparation. Not just preparing for the holiday, but preparing our hearts to receive the gift of love that comes with the Christ child. John the Baptist called his contemporaries and us to this stance. 

Pastor Dave shared this Van Morrison song that could have been written by John the Baptist.

Take the message into your week and into your conversations, reflection and devotions. 

  • If someone asked you how to get back to the basics of the faith, what would you say to them? See Matthew 3:1-12 for reflection.
  • Why is there evil in the world even though Jesus has come as the Messiah?
  • How are you being asked to lay an axe at the root of the tree? See Matthew 3:10.
  • Looking forward to next week: What do you think of the wise women who surrounded Jesus’ birth? See Deuteronomy 18:18, Psalm 117, Luke 1:39-56 and Luke 2:38 for reference.
