Waiting in Awe and Wonder, Advent 3 2018

Advent 3 collectMorsels & Stories: We practiced and talked about waiting.

Sermons: I’m pretty sure John the Baptist was the only person waiting in awe and wonder for Jesus last time.  Which disturbs me because John was…unique.

The lessons can be found by clicking here (link). I worked most closely with the collect and Luke 3:7-18.

SR Jades and the Tree of Jesse, Advent 2 2013

Link: Jades and the Tree of Jesse, Advent 2 2013

Summary of what I was saying and why:
I actually started with the word steadfast in the Epistle. That got me to the concept of being steadfast with one another and the Jade plant story. But steadfast is not a common story. So I wound up with a sermon that has no obvious connection to my starting place.

Theology: eschatology
Jesus Count: low
Good News: we wait for God, God waits for us

What did I change on my feet?
Sunday morning I changed the first section. I think bringing John the Baptist in this way worked better.
What didn’t work/what did I miss?
I’m not sure including the aloe helped. The section about what we are waiting for needs more development.
What did work?
Holding the two thoughts in parallel worked better than I was afraid it would.

Other sermons I liked:

Priest Linman talks about John the Baptist, guilt, shame, and Elf on the Shelf.

Priest Lightcap, “Without a doubt, wilderness experiences shape a person, but equally doubtless is that who a person is, or is willing to be, also shapes the experience for others.”

Priest Giroux starts with ‘O Come O Come Emmanuel’ in order to remind us that the Incarnation was not a doctrine first. It was an experience first.

(Here’s the list of people I usually listen to. Am I missing someone?)
The Anglican Church of Canada uses the Roman Ordinary Time numbering system instead of numbering the Propers. Because all of this is new to me, I’m now indicating both numbering systems.
