The First Sunday of Advent

DECEMBER 3

Beginning

"The beginning of the good news of Jesus Christ,

the Son of God."

Mark 1: 1

Reflecting on the text

Today we begin a year with the Gospel of Mark in our Sunday lectionary readings.  Mark does not tell about Jesus' birth or childhood, but jumps right into the baptism of Jesus by John the Baptist.

If you were writing the "good news" of Jesus, where would you begin?

Where does your faith story begin?

Lighting the candle

Light the first candle (purple) on the Advent wreath,

giving thanks for the beginning of Advent.
