First Sunday of Advent – Sunday, November 29 – “Waiting for a Sign”

Decades after Jesus’ birth, the apostle Paul promised the United Church of Corinth (Greece) that God would strengthen them in their waiting for Christ’s Second Coming. (I Corinthians 1:1-9). Twenty years later, after the Roman Empire destroyed Jerusalem, the writer of the Gospel of Mark told his listeners to still stay alert to God’s signs. (Mark 13:24-37) For Mark, those signs covered the spectrum from the “Son of Man descending on clouds” to a fig tree in spring. Being open to the many ways God may show up is one way to sanctify our waiting.
