Homilies about Advent 1

Advent and Christmas Cheer  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 24: 36–44
Summary: Culture has co-opted the meaning of Christmas. But with the four vignettes about “that day” in today’s reading, the church can begin to reclaim its mission to interpret what the birth of Jesus and the return of Jesus mean. These vignettes remind us that we anticipate not only grace but also judgment. This reminder of judgment dissipates our complacency and shatters our obliviousness to God’s presence.

Ain’t No Mountain High Enough  Click here Click title to view sermon Isaiah 2: 1–5
Summary:  Like Judah and Jerusalem, we are aware that God has called us to be his people. Still, we lose our footing ― we choose to stay at the bottom of the mountain instead of climbing to the top. Jesus comes to us, showing us the way. He provides us with instruction and teaching on how to climb to the top of the mountain with God.

Impulse-Darters, Bridal–Walkers and Heed–Takers  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 24: 36–44
Summary: Crowds at the mall doing Christmas shopping include people who change direction without warning to look at merchandise as well as people who cruise slowly down the concourse five abreast. Both types force the rest of us shoppers to stay alert to avoid collisions. In a similar way, the words of Jesus about the Second Coming occurring without warning remind us to so live that we are always ready to “travel.” Living heedfully doesn’t necessarily mean doing different things than others, but it does mean tending the life of the Spirit within us.

Stay on the Job  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 20: 36–44
Summary: When the Bible speaks about the return of Christ and the end of history, people often ask the question “When?” But Jesus’ words about “the coming of the Son of Man” don’t try to answer that question. Instead, they urge us to stay alert. We are to be at our posts, whether the end be near or distant.
