"Second Reading Sermons on Advent/Christmas/Epiphany"
Timothy J. Smith
In each of Sunday's assigned lectionary readings -- the First, Second, and Gospel lessons -- we are invited to view the glorious narrative of scripture through three different, yet harmonious, perspectives. In the second lesson, we become witnesses to the growth and development of the early church as described in the epistles of Paul and the other apostles. As the early Christians take their first steps in their faith, we too learn how to travel on our own journey with Christ.
"Christmas Grace" kicks off the lectionary year in the celebrations of Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany. Smith journeys through the New Testament lessons, offering fresh insight for the twenty-first-century church as they celebrate this time of new beginnings.
