Sunday's Service

Every Sunday, across the world, Christians share an agreed three year cycle of Bible Readings in Sunday worship, this is called the Common Lectionary. We offer materials including prayers bible study and worship resources for each one of these Sunday's via our Lectionary Bible Notes Section.

Advent three candlesDecember 17 - Third Sunday of Advent

John the Baptist is a most extraordinary individual. He is clearly not an ambitious man, he had no designs on one of the top jobs back in Jerusalem. Instead he spoke his mind freely without fear or desire for favour. He spoke the words he believed that God wanted the people to hear and the people flocked out to hear him, no doubt attracted by his honesty and integrity. It must have been refreshing for those who travelled out of the city into the desert. Yet he never chose comfortable words, rather he challenged the people in a way that they had not been challenged before. He called people back to their core beliefs and reminded them of the days when they lived in the desert. This Advent we are called also back to fundamentals, to prepare ourselves for the coming of our Lord.

the cross is the way


Each morning and each evening
let the peace of the Father, be ours.
Each day and each night
let the peace of the Son be ours.
Each dawn and each dusk
let the peace of the Spirit be ours.
Let the blessing of the three in one be ours;
both now and for ever. Amen.
Carmina Gadelica
