This Sunday’s gospel is a preview and promise of the second coming. Jesus describes the day of his return, and tells the disciples what they should do in the meantime. He shares a parable of a man who goes away on a journey and leaves his servants in charge. It is a familiar set-up – one he uses in several other parables. But this time he offers a new twist on an old theme. The text for Jonathan’s sermon is Mark 13:24-37, and his title is “ETA.”
We’ll be lighting the first Advent Candle, the Candle of Hope, celebrating communion, and taking part in our annual “Trek to the Tree.” Gift tags for the children and youth of Toberman Neighborhood Center will be on the beautiful Christmas tree in the narthex. Take one (or more) to sponsor and help make a child’s Christmas brighter and warmer.
See you at church!
