A Time for Rejoicing

What gives you joy?  What reasons do you find to rejoice even in the midst of the challenges of life?  This third Sunday in the season of Advent, we will rejoice together, “for the Mighty One has done great things” (Luke 1:49)! So we will sing, shout, ring, pray, and rejoice.  Even as we continue to wait for the fullness of God’s reign, even as we prepare our hearts to receive the Christ, we will also rejoice!  We will rejoice in the promised victory of God who is for us and rejoices over us. Let the words of the prophet Zephaniah sink in, “God will rejoice over you with gladness, God will renew you in God’s love; God will exult over you with loud singing as on a day of festival.”  (Zeph. 3:17-18)
