Singing our way through Advent

Singing our way through Advent

“Blessed be the LORD, the God of Israel;
he has come to his people and set them free.”
~Song of Zechariah

“Surely, it is God who saves me;
I will trust in him and not be afraid.”
~First song of Isaiah

And, now, this Sunday…

“My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,
my spirit rejoices in God my Savior.”
~Song of Mary

Songs have long been a way to express joy, offer praise, express grief, and even speak resistance. As we continue to sing our way through Advent, what songs are you singing?

Leave a post here to let us know the tune that’s tumbing around in your heart these days.

If you’re able, join us for conversation (and maybe some singing!) at Tuesday’s Lectionary at Lunch. There’s always room at the table!

Advent signs…
“I was hungry and you fed me.”

Pantry bags are all packed for Sunday’s Free Community Meal.

If you’re hungry, we will feed you.
If you are thirsty, we will give you a drink.
If you’re hurting, we will provide comfort.
If you’re are lonely, we will be your friend.

Advent signs…”Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers…”

The Catholic Worker House in Waterloo does amazing ministry. They provide a safe place to stay and food for the hungry. St. Luke’s is honored to partner with them by providing & serving a hot meal on the third Monday of every month. — at Catholic Worker House.

Advent 4

“Advent is learning to wait. It is about not having to know exactly what is coming tomorrow, only that whatever it is, it is the essence of sanctification for us. Every piece of it, some hard, some uplifting, is sign of the work of God alive in us. We are becoming as we go.” Joan Chittister

Tuesday’s Lectionary at Lunch

It was a night like any other for those shepherds minding their flock. Some would have been chosen for the night watch, keeping their eyes and ears alert to any potential threat to the herd – bandits and wild animals were among the many dangers. The others would have been searching for a comfortable spot to sleep and stay warm.

In those days, shepherds held little in common with the cute kids we usually see on Christmas Eve – the ones wearing bathrobes and draping towels on their heads and waving to loved ones from the chancel steps.

Shepherding was hard and dirty work; it was lonely and often ostracizing. So, when the angel appears to them with a message that the Messiah has come it must have been a little perplexing to this group of outcasts. What should they do? Oddly enough, they wasted no time in going to “see this thing that had taken place.” And, once they saw the Christ Child, they went with haste to let others know what had been told to them.

“Haste” isn’t a word that’s used much in everyday conversation. It means “speedy,” “rush,” “acceleration,” and “quickness.” Most of us have been moving with great haste this month (or perhaps longer), trying frantically to get ready for family and gift giving and holiday feasts for the Christmas season. While those are all good things for sure, how is operating in haste working for you? Would you like a few moments to ponder some treasured stories? Would you cherish some time to wonder and praise and savor the gift of Christ’s birth?

Join us Tuesday at 11:45 AM. There’s room for you at this inn. The gift of your presence is requested!
