Keep Awake: The First Sunday of Advent

Keep Awake: The First Sunday of Advent

November 29, 2020


Week 1     
Isaiah 64:1-9
Psalm 80:1-7, 17-19
I Corinthians 1:3-9
Mark 13:24-37

1) Where have you found hope in the past year?
2) How can or has hope for the future motivated you to work for justice in the present?
3) What is your hope for the future? How is God calling you to make this hope a reality?
4) How is the church called to “keep awake” amid the suffering and injustices uncovered by the pandemic and all that has happened this year?
5) What can we do to make sure that our Advent discipline of “staying awake” does not become passive waiting?

Prayer:  Gracious God, you sustain your people through seasons of change and challenge. Breathe into us your spirit, drive us from our waiting places and into the world to be part of the promise you proclaim. Inspire us with hope and courage to confront our needs — for justice, for health, for liberation, for one another and for you — and restore our relationships with one another and with all of creation. In the name of your son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
