Feb 4 - Truth Speaks to Power: Justice, Advocacy and our Prophetic Voice

When we look at the world around us we can feel overwhelmed by the brokenness, conflict and violence we encounter each day. We who have encountered the God of truth have been entrusted with the prophetic calling to proclaim God’s desire for justice. In our English language context we have often read texts like Matt. 5:6 and 5:10 as referring to personal righteousness when the original term is more often translated as “justice” in other languages. It sounds quite different to us to hear Matt 6:33 read as “seek first the kingdom of God and its justice.”

Who’s Calling?

1 Samuel 3:1-10, John 1:43-51

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

Advent 1: Let it be

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
