Waiting In Joyful Hope

December 16, 2012, Third Sunday of Advent: Zephaniah 3:14-18a; Philippians 4:4-7; Luke 3:10-18
Suggested Reflection Questions:
  • God is in our midst; God is very near. In what ways are you aware of God’s nearness? Is there anything in your life that keeps you from feeling it?
  • What is in your heart right now? Is it the spirit of joy and peace described in today’s readings? Or something else? (perhaps anxiety about the number of shopping days left until Christmas?!)
  • What spiritual housecleaning do you need to do in order to be ready for Jesus to move into your heart?
