Kommunicating Kerygma (ke·ryg·ma)
Second Sunday of Advent
December 10, 2017
Unlike Matthew and Luke, Mark’s gospel does not begin with a genealogy. Such a genealogy would explain why this carpenter from a small town of Nazareth is worthy of a proclamation, a gospel. In Jesus’ day a proclamation was about the birth of a royal son or a military victory. When Mark’s first verse is “The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God,” the people of the day would ask, “Who is this Jesus Christ?” The phrase “son of” would be understood to mean “having the qualities of.” Jesus is being proclaimed as having the qualities of God. Therefore, his birth must be proclaimed.

2nd Sunday of Advent
Stewardship prayer for December:
As we journey through this Advent season,
give us the wisdom to be good stewards of this time of grace, a time to be more prayerful,
to listen more intently to Your Word;
A time to allow our faith to grow and mature.
Show us how to give witness to Your Good News more fervently
among our families, friends with whom we worship.
Help us be more aware of those who are poor, lonely, or suffering
and to serve them as if we were serving You.
Fill our hearts with hope, so that we may make straight Your path
with confidence and zeal, and prepare for the joy of Your coming!
We pray this in Jesus name.
