Second Sunday in Advent Worship – December 9, 2018

John the Baptist invites us to listen to the voice of one crying in the wilderness, “Prepare the way of the Lord.” For many of us, it feels like wilderness living these days with the violence, fear, mean-spiritedness, and divisions that seem to permeate our lives and the world around us. Amid the cacophony of all these voices, is it possible to hear a voice calling us to our better selves and to lives of peace? Let’s reflect on this as we light the Advent Candle of Peace.
