A reminder for Christmas Eve poinsettias: By December 15, submit a poinsettia donation of $15 along with name(s) of loved one(s) you would like to remember or honor. These names will be printed in our Christmas Eve bulletin. Traditionally a poinsettia plant is purchased per order form from members, but this year a large poinsettia display will be set up for this purpose instead. Plants can still be brought home on a first come, first served basis after Christmas Eve. Readings for Sunday 12/6: Lessons: Isaiah 40:1-11 and Psalm 85:1-2, 8-13 Gospel: Mark 1:1-8

John calls people to repent, to clear the decks, to completely reorder their lives so that nothing gets in the way of the Lord’s coming. The reading from Isaiah gives the context for this radical call: the assurance of forgiveness that encourages us to repent; the promise that the coming one will be gentle with the little ones. Isaiah calls us all to be heralds with John, to lift up our voices fearlessly and say, “See, your God is coming!” We say it to one another in worship, in order to say it with our lives in a world in need of justice and peace.
