The Proclamation of the Word

Sunday, December 8th. 2019

Dr. Philip K. James

 

                                                      

  

 This Week at Mount Zion 

ADVENT 2019--love

Second Sunday of Advent (Focus: Isaiah 40:1-11) 

Reader 1: O God, we light the second candle of Advent. 

(With the first candle already burning, a family memer lights the second candle.)

Reader 2:  We seek your comfort. Both mighty and tender, you come.  Prepare our hearts to be transformed by your love for us. 

(Option): We have sought such a God, both mighty and tender. We recall...(a member or members of a family describe a time they sought the might and tenderness of God.)

Reader 1: Isaiah announced God's coming to a people exiled in a broken and parched wilderness. He declared that God;s redemtpion would make a highway in the desert and change the rough places into plain. God would come as a shepherd - feeding!, leading, and cradling the weary flock. This Advent, we seek such a God. 

People: Saving God, look upon your world and heal your land and your people. Prepare us to be changed. This advent, teach us to be tender and just, as you are. Amen. 

People:  Shine on us, O God of justince:

Guide our path through gloom of night;

Bear within us Wisdom's glory;


Our Vision:

To become a nurturing community of believers; where persons and families feel love; participate in worship; develope their God-given gifts in ministry and committed discipleship, in order to meet the spiritual, physical and social needs of the congregation and community, to the glory of God. 

Because He lives, we can face tomorrow!  May God Bless your week in a Supernatural Way! 

May Jesus be the Center of your Joy!

You are in our prayers.
