Last week we spent time with Zechariah’s beautiful blessing for his newborn son, John, and this week we meet John, fully grown and in the wilderness, as he calls others to repentance in order to prepare the way for the coming of the Lord. What does that mean and how does it get expressed in the real lives of listeners of that day and listeners today? How can we hear John’s severe language as “Good News” and how does John’s ministry move us closer to the JOY to which God calls us? Join us this Sunday as we continue our journey in and through Advent and as we light the third Advent candle, the candle of JOY!
Scripture passage: Luke 3:1-18
