Fourth Sunday of AdventDecember 20, 2015
The fourth candle has now been lit – we are almost there.
Almost to that night when Micah’s praises once again ring true – the promise and praise of Bethlehem we hear in our first reading – a city once known as the city of David shall not give rise to one king – but now two.
We are almost that moment when God’s promise would be fulfilled: David’s lineage would last forever – a king who united Israel and established peace for Israel will soon give rise to a king who would unite and establish peace throughout all space and time.
