Sermon: Turning Toward Joy

Rev. David Baak

Sunday, December 16, 2018

The message of John the Baptist is a hard word in Advent but it is also clear about the one who is to come: “he will baptize you with the Holy Spirt"…So, John “...proclaimed the good news to the people.” But, the people’s question still was (and is): “What then shall we do?” The answer (from the prophet): “Rejoice and exult with all your heart.” As Walter Brueggemann says, “...especially exultant is that joy which is completely unexpected, or which breaks suddenly into the midst of our gloom.” Join us Sunday at 8:30 or 11:00 for music from harp and choir and a word about...turning toward Joy.
