Waiting on the Threshold

Company's Coming

Fourth Sunday of Advent, Year B

It’s the fourth Sunday of Advent, and the tug of war is over. Christmas now takes center stage. Families who have come home and may not join you for Christmas Eve services are expecting a Christmas message. It won’t do to keep to the Advent theme of anticipation of the second coming of Christ. We need to relive the first. We need to live into the first. We are on the threshold of a new world.

Gracious and Generous God: We offer our gifts to you, knowing full well we have devoted so much more energy into finding the gifts for our families and much less on the gifts we offer to you. You gave Mary, an unmarried girl, a Son so the world might have a Savior. Her response was so simple: “Here I am, the servant of the Lord; let it be according to your word.” May her affirmation of faith and obedience be the gift we offer this day. In Christ, we pray. Amen. (Luke 1:26-38)
