Worship and COMMUNION (Sanctuary and Virtual)

               @ 9:30am,  Dec. 5th      

                Rev, Rebecca Migliore preaching

                    -   Lectionary is (Luke 1:68–79)


      Zechariah knew Malachi’s words well, yet never imagined his part in bringing the prophecy to life. His song in Luke 1:68–79 is his first utterance in months. When the messenger, Gabriel, tells Zechariah that his wife Elizabeth would bear a son, Zechariah responds with fear, skepticism, and cynicism. As a result, he is unable to speak until his son John is born (1:19–20). Thus, John’s birth evokes the question – “What will this child become?” (1:66). Zechariah, himself God’s messenger, speaks over John almost as a liturgical response to this question and names his son as the messenger who will prepare the way for the coming savior.
