We continue our Advent journey today with a reading from the prophet, Zephaniah. His very name means God protects. Zephaniah's prophecy is limited to three chapters, just 55 verses.

But really, Advent and Lent are both times to examine our lives and the world and ask God for forgiveness. These are the seasons for the prophets to call us on our crazy ways.
As grateful as I am for the time and mentorship of some pastors early in my ministry, it took me years to sort out that I needed to consider the source of a lot of the counsel.

What does it mean to be Christian? What makes a person a Christian? An important prologue: my purpose in this blog is not to provide criteria for deciding who is and who is not a Christian, not to separate sheep from goats, not to suggest who is in and who is out. Rather, it is a series of reflections about what is at the heart of being Christian. What matters most in seeing what being Christian is about?
In our blog post every Monday we select a reading from the Revised Common Lectionary for the upcoming Sunday, and pair it with a Frederick Buechner reading on the same topic. On December 8, 2013 we will celebrate the Second Sunday in Advent.
