We are approaching the first Sunday of the Advent season. Our passages to consider this week include: Jeremiah 33:14-16, Psalm 25:1-10, 1 Thessalonians 3:9-13, and Luke 21:25-36.
Jeremiah 33:14 – The days are surely coming, says the LORD, when I will fulfill the promise I made to the house of Israel and the house of Judah.
Advent is a season of anticipation. While we wait for the birth of the Christ child, we also consider that day when Christ returns and peace rules over the world.
Everlasting, ever-present God: we live in a complicated and often dangerous world. Help us one day to visualize the peace that only you can bring. Amen.
