C 102 - Advent 2

Fran and Kylie discuss Malachi 3:1-4, Zechariah’s song in Luke 1:68-79, and the gospel reading Luke 3:1-6. We focus on the reckoning of Advent, properly understood: opening ourselves to God’s cleansing fire through which we come face to face with God’s grace and kindness.

We mention:

Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s Advent sermon, 1928, as found in  Kathryn Schifferdecker’s Working Preacher article,  originally sourced in Stephen Cook’s blog “Biblische Ausbildung”.
