LISTEN: Reflection for the 3rd Sunday of Advent — Year A
The readings for this Gaudete (Rejoice) Sunday are both consolation and invitation.
As we move toward Christmas we may be feeling discouraged. Many feel betrayed by our leaders and worried about the impact of load-shedding. Some have lost their homes in the flooding of the Jukskei River. Across the globe, the impact of climate change is being felt. Fear-based politics in many places means that refugees and migrants will not be welcomed.
Into this place of discouragement and chaos, the words of the prophet Isaiah come with an astonishing promise and an invitation.
Annemarie Paulin-Campbell invites us to reflect on how we live in the light of this promise.
Isaiah35: 1-6, 10; James 5: 7-10; Matthew 11: 2-11.
