"Prepare the Way"

This sermon was preached Sunday, December 8, the second Sunday of Advent. It was intended for the first Sunday of Advent, but preached a week later because of weather. This sermon was followed with a celebration of the Lord’s Supper.

This short sermon series will look at the Advent life of John the Baptist. This first sermon was preached from Luke 1:16-17 and 76-79.

Q. Do you or your family keep Advent in a meaningful way (e.g. Advent candles)? If so, how has that time together changed your experience of the Christmas season?

Q. How is your hope? Are you awaiting expectantly that Jesus is about to show up in your life, to rescue and redeem and reconcile? Or have you lost hope this Advent? Or are you putting your hope on things that cannot sustain it?
