And so we come, once again, to Advent 4. We light 4 candles. Will you sing a carol or 2 or stick with Advent hymns only? Do you have a pageant or a cantata and a brief reflection? Or is it a week for a full sermom?
If you are preaching, are you with Elizabeth and Zechariah in the Narrative Lectionary? If you use the Revised Common Lectionary, are you considering Joseph and the genealogy in Matthew 1? Are you reading Isaiah and considering the implications of the Hebrew scripture promises? Are you with Paul and the Romans or some combination thereof. Or are you finishing an Advent series of some other sort?
We are here to listen, to work together, to help one another. Let us know what you are thinking. Ask questions. Offer suggestions and sustenance.
My kids have been off school all week, and my (bored) daughter made brownies I’d be happy to share. They’re a little gooey.
