For Sunday 7 December 2019

 

As we gather for worship this Sunday the readings speak of impending judgment. "Repent," John calls, "for the kingdom of heaven is near" (Matthew 3:2). Isaiah proclaims, "With the breath of His lips He will slay the wicked" (11:4). The reaper who is coming will "[burn] up the chaff with unquenchable fire" (Matthew 3:12). But the Judge will not only condemn, He will also "gather His wheat into the barn" (Matthew 3:12). St. Paul urges us to learn from the Scriptures so that by their encouragement we might have hope and, filled with joy and peace, endure in the faith till He comes. Then we will see His peaceable kingdom and share in His glorious rest forever.

Beginng 4 December we will gather on Wednesday evenings to join in worship praying for our Lord's Advent, that is his coming. The services, following the liturgy of Evening Prayer, will begin at 7:00 p.m. and last about 40 minutes.
