In the church calendar, the season of Advent commemorates Christ’s first coming and looks in expectation to His second coming in the future.
Here are the readings for the First Sunday after Christmas Day:

Isaiah 61:10-62:3; Psalm 148; Galatians 4:4-7; Luke 2:22-40

(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.)
