 November 27, 2022 – The Annunciation: “God Has Heard Your Prayers” 

Text:  Malachi 4:1-6; Matthew 3:1-3; Luke 1:5-17

Theme:  Advent is a time of waiting and preparation. We wait for God, trusting in God to hear our prayers and to be with us no matter what.

This sermon introduces the series, the Advent season, and the figure of John the Baptist who came to prepare the way for the Lord. It also invites reflection on the nature of prayer and the way God answers our prayers, as well as God’s desire and ability to work through those who are very old.

December 4, 2022 – Pregnancy, Birth, Circumcision, and Zechariah’s Prophecy 

Text:  Luke 1:57-79

Theme:  God is gracious.

This sermon explores three key points about the birth of John the Baptist: first, we can never have certainty in life, but we can have faith and trust. Second, silence can be a great gift for responding to God. And third, we all need relationships of mentoring. All of these are signs of God’s grace, which John the Baptist’s name points to.

December 11, 2022 – John’s Ministry and Preaching 

Text:  Luke 3:1-8

Theme: Repentance and remembrance of baptism.

This sermon explores the ministry of John the Baptist, which proclaimed baptism for the forgiveness of sins and a call to action, bearing fruit worthy of repentance.

December 18, 2022 – Compassion and Generosity: Fruits Worthy of Repentance 

Text:  Luke 3:7-14,  Mark 6:14-29

Theme: Repentance leads to a change of behavior characterized by a new mindset of compassion and generosity.

This sermon explores the action-oriented repentance that John the Baptist called for, exhorting his hearers to “bear fruits worthy of repentance” (NRSV). We bear fruits worthy of repentance when we extend compassion and generosity toward others. The season of Advent and the celebration of Christmas offers us a unique opportunity to do this.

December 24-25, 2022 – Witnesses, Testifying to the Light 

Text:  John 1:1-14, John 3:22-30, Matthew 3:13-17

Theme: Like John the Baptist, we are called to point the way to Jesus.

This sermon explores the relationship between Jesus and John the Baptist, beginning with their possible childhood association and Jesus’s baptism by John. It highlights John’s role as someone who embodies humble service, willing to step aside and point the way to Jesus. It emphasizes how we are called to reflect the light of Jesus—not being ourselves the light but testifying to the light.
