Second Week of Advent



God is leading Israel in joy
by the light of his glory,
with his mercy and justice for company.
Baruch 5 
We begin this second week of our Advent journey 
with this wonderful proclamation of the end of our exile. 
We really can take off our robe of misery
and put on the splendor of the glory of God forever. 
Let us experience today what it will be like to be 
freed from the power of our sins to hold us captive. 
Freed from our longing, our desire: 
that we might be set free. 
“The Lord has done great things for us; we are filled with joy.”
Ps. 126


 May the Lord bless us, 
protect us from all evil 
and bring us to everlasting life. 
Amen.
