Lectionary: December 10, 2017

In the church calendar, the season of Advent commemorates Christ’s first coming and looks in expectation to His second coming in the future. This Sunday, we light the Peace Candle to remind us of the peace that Jesus brings into our lives.
Here are the readings for the Second Sunday of Advent:

Isaiah 40:1-11; Psalm 85:1-2, 8-13; 2 Peter 3:8-15a; Mark 1:1-8

(A lectionary is a list of Bible readings, generally designed to provide a substantial reading of the Bible’s content during the course of a few years, often aligned with the seasons of the church year.)
