On the Table– November 26 through December 2

This Advent, we’re excited to be following a modified Lectionary designed by Brentwood Christian Church in Springfield, MO. Since our schedule doesn’t allow us to meet close to Christmas, it seemed wise to move some of the more classic ‘Christmassy’ texts earlier in the calendar. We hope you’ll take a look at these texts and bring your own insights, questions, and content each week.

Dec. 2: Matthew 2:1-12
Dec. 9: Matthew 2:13-23
Dec. 16: Luke 1:46-56

This Sunday at 10:15, we’ll dive right into the first reading, a tale of intrigue and danger and secret back-room deals. It makes House of Cards seem a bit dull, and brings contemporary events into sharp focus. We hope to have your ideas on the (Common) Table this Sunday at Church of the Good Shepherd.
