The 1st Sunday of Advent

  • Holy Trinity Lutheran Church 7220 Southeast Cesar E Chavez Boulevard Portland, OR, 97202 United States (map)

Advent is about the "coming days."  God's people have always lived in great expectation, but that expectation finds specific, repeated enunciation in the texts appointed for these four weeks.  The ancient anticipated a "righteous Branch to spring up fro David."  The Thessalonians awaited "the coming of our Lord Jesus with all the saints."  Our Lord's contemporaries hoped for the time "to stand before the Son of Man."  With them we eagerly await the coming days: another Christmas celebration, a second coming, and the advent of our Lord in word and supper.
