With Faith Awakened

The First Sunday in Advent
Mark 13:24-37

Nick reads the one-minute introduction.

Jesus’ words that you will read sound more like something ending, rather than the beginning of a new church year. It appears to be the reversal of the first verses of Genesis when God created light, the sun, and the moon. Darkness comes again, as though chaos, first bound by God at the beginning of the Bible, is swallowing up God’s creation again. These are signs of the beginning of something gloriously new—the total reign of Jesus in creation. However, as often happens in our own personal lives, “Things have to get worse before they get better.” Present with you right now, the Lord seeks to turn the chaos of your life into one of order and light, even when you do not see it.

Walk awakened in faith and not in fear.


Sundays are dedicated to the Gospels from The Revised Common Lectionary.
