Sorry for being a little late on my sermon posting. This week of the Good Shepherd (see the collect for the Fourth Sunday), Jesus reveals himself in John’s Gospel to be the “gate” for God’s sheepfold. Let us rejoice in the protection, provision, and guidance our Lord provides for us as part of his flock.
This Second Week in Advent, what do you expect from those who govern you? In Psalm 72:1-7, 18-19, the Psalmist is looking for someone who seems to be fully human and fully divine. I only know one King who fits that description. Don’t settle for second best!
