Sunday, November 27, 2022 – FIRST SUNDAY OF ADVENT


The new church year begins with a wake-up call: Christ is coming soon!
In today’s readings both Paul and Jesus challenge us to wake from sleep, for we know neither the day nor hour of the Lord’s coming.
Isaiah proclaims the day when God will gather all people on the holy mountain and there will be no more war or suffering.
Though we vigilantly watch for the promised day of salvation, we wait for what we already have: Christ comes among us this day as the word and meal that strengthens our faith in the promises of God.
