Editor’s Note: I’m playing catch-up with blogging Faith Church’s sermons. My doctoral coursework, a heavy load grading online classes I teach, and the holidays landed simultaneously these past few weeks! So before we jump back to the Deuteronomy series, I’ll survey the last few weeks of Advent, belatedly, of course.
On the Third Sunday of Advent 2018, Emerald Peters preached the Lectionary passages. The passages were: Zephaniah 3:14-20; Isaiah 12:2-6; Philippians 4:4-7; and Luke 3:7-18. Read the passages and see if you can discover a theme!
Emerald started her sermon with a Pop Quiz! One question, multiple choice. There are many statistics that say this time of year has some of the highest rates of:
- Warm fuzzy feelings
- Suicide and depression
- Pleasant family interaction
What’s your answer? Then read the Scripture passages to learn how the Scripture passages on the Third Sunday of Advent address this!
