Peace Is More Than a Christmas Wish

Isaiah 2:1-4, 2 Corinthians 4:18

2nd Sunday of Advent - Year A

December 09, 2007

The Rev. Dr. P.C. Enniss (PCUSA)

For Christians, Advent, those four Sundays a year devoted to preparing for the celebration of the birth of Christ is one of the most serious and sacred of all the seasons of the Christian calendar. However, for the culture at large, Advent unofficially marks the kickoff for the most festive holiday season of the year. With Halloween and Thanksgiving finally out of the way, nothing now to impede the all out surge toward Christmas and with all that involves-crowded shopping malls, office parties, open houses, family gatherings, gifts to buy and wrap, greeting cards to get out, decorations galore, Handel's Messiah, Rudolph, manger scenes, Santa Claus, and all the rest of it, as children and adults alike tear around with various visions of sugarplums dancing in our heads. It is surely one of the most delightful, if frenetic, times of the year; and while Christmas appropriately should be celebrated with exceeding great joy, including dancing and singing, feasting, and the sharing of gifts, there is, it seems, a kind of uneasiness, almost an embarrassment, that hovers unspoken over much of the frivolity of Christmas this year.

1st Sunday of Advent - Year A

December 02, 2007

The Rev. Dr. P.C. Enniss (PCUSA)

Our lives are inevitably shaped by those for whom we wait. You'd better not shout, you'd better not cry, you'd better not pout, I'm telling you why. Santa Claus is coming to town.

Our lives are inevitably shaped by those for whom we wait. We know from the Old Testament lesson Isaiah has a vision of one who was to come to redeem the world and to usher in God's kingdom on earth. It was the single vision which fashioned Isaiah's life, shaped by the one for whom he waited.
