Worship Themes for December 1 & 8

DECEMBER 1

FIRST SUNDAY IN ADVENT

Texts: Isaiah 2:1-5 & Luke 1:24-45

Hope

We begin the season of advent by lighting the first candle, a symbol of hope.
Our focus on this day will be on the witness of Elizabeth, Mary's cousin, who
becomes a close companion of Mary's in her time of waiting. We will reflect on
the significance of extended family and the diversity of family given to us
as gifts in our journeys of waiting and hoping.

DECEMBER 8

SECOND SUNDAY IN ADVENT

Texts: Isaiah 11:1-10 & Luke 1:26-55

Peace

Today we light the candle of peace. The prophet Isaiah envisions a
time of peace for God's people when those who were once enemies are
made friends, and enmity and strife cease on earth. His imagery is
provocative as he envisions a wolf living with a lamb, and cows and
bears grazing side by side. Mary, the mother of Jesus, was
undoubtedly aware of Isaiah's vision. She herself, having said "yes"
to God's promise to her, is emboldened to proclaim a vision of peace
and justice on earth in her song of praise. We will pay attention to
her song on this day.
