Rejoice in the Lord Always

12 December 2021

Sermon given by the Rev. Nathan Stomberg on 3 Advent (12/12/2021).

We rejoice because the Lord is near to us. We do not serve some faraway God who sits up in an ivory tower, nor do we serve some “divine clockmaker” who wound up the gears of space and time and then stepped back to watch without any involvement. We are instead blessed by a Lord who knows each and every one of us intimately, who took on our very flesh to dwell among us, and who promised to come again one day and redeem all of creation.

Readings: Zephaniah 3:14-20; Psalm 85:7-13; Philippians 4:4-9; Luke 3:7-18
