    The beginning of Christmas. Mark 1 - 1 - 8 Ever got a puncture and found that the jack handle is missing? Ever tried to undo a nut and found you don’t have the correct spanner ?

    An advent sermon on repentance

    A Strange Christmas Passage I wasn’t sure whether I should come here today, after all, how could I come and preach at a Church in a denomination that seems to have got their lectionary passage wrong. Here we are in the second Sunday of advent, only two more Sundays before Christmas day, and the more

    Doesn’t it strike you as strange that the birth of an obscure Jewish Carpenter born two thousand years ago has had such an impact on our civilisation unless he really is.........

    Brinton, Binham and Blakeney 08-12-02 Doesn’t it strike you as strange? Mark 1:1-8: Today is the second Sunday in Advent – a time that we prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus two thousand years ago in a stable in an Inn in a small village called Bethlehem. But doesn’t it more

  • The Divine Visitation

    Contributed by Paul Kallan on Dec 5, 2002
    based on 37 ratings

    It is better to be cleansed from the roots of evil than to be lead from the different forms of prisons that they build around us.

    On the second Sunday of Advent, Mark 1.1-8 calls our attention to the person of John the Baptist. John is a figure of confrontation. This confrontation is interior in nature. It has to do with our inner self. It is the greatest challenge of cleansing ourselves innerly. Tom was a quite boy. His more

  • Mark 1:1-8 What Would John The Baptist Say To You

    Contributed by Don Schultz on Dec 5, 2002
    based on 470 ratings

    This is a time of the year for cliches and spiritual sappy-talk. John the Baptist offers a fresh perspective.

    Mark 1:1-8 WHAT WOULD JOHN THE BAPTIST SAY TO YOU? Sometimes, when you hear the same thing all the time, it starts to become less and less meaningful. For example, right now, at this time in the year, the newspaper, the TV, and the radio are all saying the same thing: “There is a special sale more

  • "Pointing Beyond Ourselves"

    Contributed by Kenneth Sauer on Dec 5, 2002

    In John the Baptist we have an example of humble living, speaking truth, and always pointing beyond ourselves to Christ.

    “POINTING BEYOND OURSELVES” Mark 1:1-8 Isaiah 40:1-11 By: Rev. Kenneth E. Sauer, Pastor of Parkview United Methodist Church, Newport News, VA Approximately three-hundred years before John the Baptist came on the scene... ...God had promised through the prophet Isaiah that a person would come and more

    based on 49 ratings

    how John prepared the people for Christ and how we also do

    December 8, 2002 Mark 1:1-8 The beginning of the gospel about Jesus Christ, the Son of God. It is written in Isaiah the prophet: “I will send my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way”- “a voice of one calling in the desert, ‘Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for more

  • A Good Place To Start

    Contributed by Eloy Gonzalez on Dec 7, 2002
    based on 94 ratings

    Second Sunday in Advent: The evangelist Mark starts with John the Baptist preaching in the wilderness. He seems to leave out Christmas. But perhaps, for us, it is a ’good place to start.’

    The Gospel Lesson today is one of the most interesting Advent / Christmas lessons in all of scripture. I say that because - did you notice that something seems to be missing? There is no mention of Christmas in this Gospel. Mark mentions neither the miraculous conception nor the birth of Jesus. And more

    based on 36 ratings

    The second week of advent looks towards John the Baptist as the Messenger of Christ’s coming peace.

    Cresson Baptist Church Sunday, December 8, 2002 Scripture: Mark 1:1-8 Messenger of Peace Introduction: Advent is the season of preparation for the coming of Christ. We remember when Christ was born in this time of the year. It is more symbolic than literal. When I was considering these 4 more

    based on 7 ratings

    What it is to Prepare for the Incarnation and return of Christ

    Last week, we took a look at that which we are preparing for. I mentioned the obvious – that we look back as we prepare once again to celebrate the birth of the messiah, of Emmanuel, God with us – come to save us from our sin and death. We look all around and we see the world preparing to more

  • Baptism Of Our Lord B

    Contributed by Roger Haugen on Jan 9, 2003
    based on 67 ratings

    Out of chaos comes the words, "You are my beloved Son, with you I am well pleased."

    Baptism of Our Lord B 12 January 2003 Mark 1:4-11, Genesis 1:1-5 Rev. Roger Haugen The Genesis reading is one of my favourites. You get a sense of this wonderful, foreboding mass of moving water. This is the little Hebrew I still remember. Verse 2 “the earth was a formless void and more

  • So, What's Wrong With Avis?

    Contributed by John Beehler on Jan 10, 2003
    based on 59 ratings

    There’s nothing wrong with being #2 as long Jesus is #1.

    So, What’s Wrong With Avis? To say John the Baptist was unique would be an understatement. He had taken a Nazirite vow. Now a Nazirite vow contained 3 main conditions: refrain from wine and other intoxicants, not allow a razor to touch one’s hair, and not go near a dead body -–not more
