Special Advent Series: Preaching the Apostles' Creed in Advent
Professor John T. Pless has organized an incredible Advent series on the Apostles' Creed for you! Included here are texts, themes, and an order of service for your midweek Advent services.
Old Testament: Malachi 3:13-18 (The Last Sunday in the Church Year: Series C)
In many ways [this text] brings to mind Judgement Day and the separation of the sheep from the goats when Christ the King comes to take His treasured possession home to be with Him in the courts of everlasting life.
Epistles: Colossians 1:13-20 (The Last Sunday in the Church Year: Series C)
The epistle text from Colossians 1 declares how the great drama of redemption and human history ends.
Gospel: Luke 23:27-43 (The Last Sunday in the Church Year: Series C)
God invites us to have intimate conversations in a world filled with mockery and hate. To trust Jesus reigns whenever and wherever He extends a word of promise to the displaced and the disfavored, welcoming them home.
Preaching Hope: Theological Reflections on the Last Sundays of the Church Year
It is in the midst of a world marked by empty and deceptive hopes that have broken hearts and lives that we are sent to deliver the promise of a future that has as its last chapter the resurrection of the body to eternal life with the Lamb who was slain but is alive forevermore.
