Passage: Jeremiah 31:7-14
Sunday, January 2, 2022
Rev Will White preached on “The Light of Home” from the series "Come Home for Christmas" based on scriptures Jeremiah 31:7-14, John 1:1-9 and John 1:10-18. This is the Second Sunday after Christmas.
This week was a continuation of last week; the Christmastide desire to hold on to the hope of Christmas. Except this week, we go from a position of strength and not of loss. Instead of focusing on the cloud, we look to the light.
More about the series Come Home for Christmas: Advent is an invitation. For many, it is the invitation to get into that Christmas spirit, to count down the days to the grand celebration, and let the holiday transform everything around us. We’re not all about Christmas, the holiday, about December 25 with all the jingle bells and tinsel. We are about Christmas, the Mass of Christ, the celebration of the Incarnate one who comes to remind us that we are not alone, and God is with us. We are about the longing for the coming kin-dom, where we will study war no more, where people will walk in the light, where joy will be found, and love with be the tie that binds us together. That’s the home for which we long. That’s the invitation this Advent season to your church and the world: “Come home for Christmas.”
