3rd Week of Advent  |  December 12, 2021
Rev. Denise Clark-Jones


In the third week of Advent, God’s promises of new life and healing echo through the scriptures. The prophet Zephaniah speaks words of joy, reminding the people of Israel that God is in their midst, promising them salvation and flourishing. Isaiah 12 not only sends the beleaguered people of Israel a message of hope; but also urges them to take an active part in God’s redemption of the world. The gospel reading from Luke describes John the Baptist exhorting people to “bear fruits worthy of repentance,” while also promising that someone more powerful than he is coming to bring about the kingdom of God. A new day is dawning, and there is cause for rejoicing. Paul makes a similar claim in his letter to the Philippians with the words: “Rejoice in the Lord always!”

Stir up your power, O Lord, and with great might come among us;
and, because we are sorely hindered by our sins, let your bountiful
grace and mercy speedily help and deliver us; through Jesus Christ
our Lord, to whom, with you and the Holy Spirit, be honor and glory, now and for ever. Amen.
