December 30, 2012 First Sunday of Christmas

This week’s readings and propers

First of all, apologies for not posting for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. I spent the weekend before Christmas very sick in bed, recovered just barely in time for my Christmas Eve services. I heard an excellent Christmas sermon at my church, valiantly taking on all the topics that those who only come once a year need to hear about.

Such a shame this is a low Sunday because we hear a great story for kids and families, Jesus getting lost…or…rather…Mary and Joseph losing Jesus. The reading from Isaiah sticks with the theme of young boys.

The reading from Colossians carries over the Christmas spirit of compassion and kindness.

Pull up a mug of eggnog and join us in our lectionary discussion.

A very merry Christmas to you and yours. Godspeed in your travels, either between churches, homes, or even provinces. May God incarnate dwell in all your journeys this week.

About Dawn Leger

I am a priest in the Diocese of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island, having served in Stouffville, Ontario. I think preaching is a profound and great privilege granted to us by God and our Church. I love the reading, the writing, the proclaiming, the dissecting and the dialogue. I also love to cook, sing, read and laugh, in no particular order.
