Expecting the Word – Advent Two – Saturday

My Advent series this year will follow the Words Matter Advent study from the National Council of Churches. Download the whole booklet if you’d like, and follow along with the writings for each day. I’d love to discuss them with you. Also, here is a link to the Advent readings from the Inclusive Bible. I prefer the more inclusive language here, than the NRSV texts used in the study booklet (be sure to read the note on page 6).

Mark 1:1-8

Mark introduces us to John the Baptist.

I love the mental picture in the devotional of being baptized with words as well as being baptized with water.

I know that I am woefully remiss by failing to speaking words of affirmation and acceptance.

I will try during the coming week to tell people who matter to me that they do. I know I often just assume that they know how important they are in my life.
