Advent Weekly Themes

Advent 1: Let it be

December 3, 2017

Focus statement: We awaken to God’s purpose, which begins in darkness-whether seed in the ground, child in the womb, or new self in the soul. We are shaking, fearful, and resistant, yet we call upon God to tear open the heavens and be present with us in our uncertainty.

Scripture: Isaiah 64:1-9;Luke 1:26-38; Mark 13:24-27

Advent 2: Let it be so

December 10, 2017

Focus statement: We long to be comforted, we long for change. Moving from uncertainty and fear, we call upon God to make things ready-the mountains leveled, the paths made straight, our hearts prepared.

Scripture: Isaiah 40:1-11; 2 Peter 3:8-15a, Mark 1:1-4

Advent 3: Let it Be Whole

December 17, 2017

Focus statement: Rejoicing in God’s comfort, we catch God’s vision of shalom. We choose to join the Spirit that is already at work restoring creation.

Scripture: Isaiah 61:1-4, 8-11; Luke 1:46b-55; 1 Thessalonians 5:16-24

Advent 4: Yes! Let it be now

December 24, 2017
Candlelight service – Readings focused on theme of light

Advent 5: Yes! Let it be new

December 31, 2017

Focus statement: We marvel at the vastness of God’s plan. We celebrate in exuberant praise what God has done and will continue to do.

Scripture: Isaiah 61:10-62:3; Psalm 148; Galatians 4:4-7; Luke 2:25-32

Epiphany: Yes! Let it be declared

January 7, 2017

Focus statement: Drawn by the light, we, like the magi, are sent forth in new directions. We are empowered to be God’s illuminating presence in the world. Arise, shine, for the mystery of Christ has been revealed!

Scripture: Isaiah 60:1-6; Ephesians 3:1-12; Matthew 2:1-12
