Sunday, December 10 (Second Sunday in Advent)
To get started this week, watch this video: Prepare Ye (Godspell)
Share your “highs” and your “lows” for the past week with each other.
The beginning of the good news of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
As it is written in the prophet Isaiah, See, I am sending my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way; the voice of one crying out in the wilderness: “Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight”
John the baptizer appeared in the wilderness, proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. And people from the whole Judean countryside and all the people of Jerusalem were going out to him, and were baptized by him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins. Now John was clothed with camel’s hair, with a leather belt around his waist, and he ate locusts and wild honey. He proclaimed, ‘The one who is more powerful than I is coming after me; I am not worthy to stoop down and untie the thong of his sandals. I have baptized you with water; but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.’
What stands out to you about the reading? What do you like to “prepare” for in your life? How might this translate to the way you live your faith?
Pray for one another.
Special prayer requests: Pray for all of those who are suffering loss during this time of year.
Bless each other by making the sign of the cross on each one’s forehead.
