Today is the 2nd Sunday in Advent and will be finishing Romans 11. Pastor Shane will be preaching from Romans 11:25-33. We will pick Romans back up after the Christmas Season to finish the last 4 chapters of the book.
To prepare for worship, read the Collect and Scripture lessons.
The Collect for the 2nd Sunday in Advent.
Blessed Lord, who caused the holy scriptures to be written for our learning, grant that we may so hear, read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest them that through patience and the comfort of your holy Word, we may embrace and for ever hold fast the joyful hope of everlasting life, which you have given us in our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.
The Collect for the 1st Sunday in Advent.
Almighty God, give us grace to cast away the works of darkness and to put on the armour of light, now in the time of this mortal life, in which your Son Jesus Christ came to us in great humility so that on the last day, when he will come again in his glorious majesty to judge the living and the dead, we may rise to the life immortal, through him who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
