SUNDAY OF ADVENT
Zephaniah 3: 14-18; Psalm 12; Philippians 4: 4-7; Luke 3: 10-18

reflections on the Sunday scripture readings designed for persons on the run.
“Faith Book” is also brief enough to be posted in the Sunday parish
bulletins people take home.
today’s Gospel reading:
The crowds asked John the Baptist,
“What should we do?”
If we are going to welcome the Christ child at Christmas, we will need to face
what hinders our openness to him and will dampen our welcome. We take up the
question those who heard John asked him, “What should we do?” The issue at this
point is not what people should ponder or think about doing. The imminent coming
of the Messiah requires action now. We are to do something and do it now. No
putting off action.
So, we ask ourselves:
Am I giving the coming of Christ enough attention this Advent?
If not, what is distracting me and what can I do to be ready for
him when he comes?
