Second Wednesday of Advent – an Advent woe

Advent tells the truth (as Isaiah declared in chapter 6, “Woe is me, I am lost, a man of unclean lips.”) the whole truth (“yet my eyes have seen the King!) and nothing but the truth – God graciously makes a way for us to bear God’s presence! Thank you and Amen. Debby

Second Tuesday of Advent – an Advent warning

Isaiah 5:24 “Their root will become rotten, and their blossom go up like dust; for they have rejected the instruction of the Lord and despised the word of the Holy One.” Advent reminds us that God’s word is to be received and loved, otherwise all our best efforts shall wither and die. What is God’s word? Jesus. He is logos, the word became flesh.

Second Monday of Advent – good coffee and good wine

Isaiah 5:8-12 reminds us that all the good things life offers can hurt us unless we acknowledge God’s deeds and God’s works. Enjoy these good things in the context of God’s great love and provision. (verse 11 is a little too close for comfort! hehe) Love, D

First Saturday of Advent – the Branch and its fruit

Isaiah 4:2 “On that day, the branch of the Lord shall be beautiful and glorious.” He is the vine and we are the branches. Advent reminds us of God’s intention for our lives: to be connected to the source of all beauty. His beauty and glory flows into you today! D

First Friday of Advent – God as Perry Mason

Isaiah 3:8-15 “The Lord rises to argue his case.” Advent reminds us that God does not stand aloof; God enters the fray; God stands up for his people. The incarnation is proof that God takes our case, the Lord is our advocate.
