Fourth Sunday of Advent

December 20, 2015

ALMOST THERE

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.

CLICK HERE for the readings for the Fourth Sunday of Advent (Micah 5:1-4; Psalm 80; Hebrews 10:5-10; Luke 1:39-45)
