Sermon given by the Rev. Mark R. Galloway (Bishop-retired) on 1 Advent (11/28/2021).

The season of Advent prepares us for the Second Coming of Christ. It is a season of anticipation, and of expectant waiting. Yet our waiting in life is not a mere waiting to die. All of us are tempted to live out our days as if we were waiting to die, but our time on earth is much more than that. For Christians, we are not waiting, worrying until the clock runs out, but instead preparing for the dawn of eternal life in Christ Jesus.

Readings: Zechariah 14:4-9; Psalm 50:1-6; 1 Thessalonians 3:9-13; Luke 21:25-31
