Monica Scheifele of the Ottawa office reflects on the unexpected good news of the third advent lectionary passages.

The good news doesn’t end there. In all four passages there are references to the presence of the Lord. The Lord is coming, is near, or in our midst. No one listening to John likely imagined that the Messiah’s arrival was so close at hand or would happen in such a humble setting, but it did. God is present with us and change is not only possible, but it is happening in unexpected ways. Individual hearts and minds can experience positive change which means the world also can be changed.
