December 6, 2020: Second Sunday of Advent – Rev. Dr. Pamela Stuerke

December 6, 2020
Passage: Mark 1:1-8

The beginning of the good news of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
As it is written in the prophet Isaiah,
“See, I am sending my messenger ahead of you,
who will prepare your way;
the voice of one crying out in the wilderness:
‘Prepare the way of the Lord,
make his paths straight,’”
John the baptizer appeared in the wilderness, proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the
forgiveness of sins. And people from the whole Judean countryside and all the people of
Jerusalem were going out to him, and were baptized by him in the river Jordan, confessing their
sins. Now John was clothed with camel’s hair, with a leather belt around his waist, and he ate
locusts and wild honey. He proclaimed, “The one who is more powerful than I is coming after
me; I am not worthy to stoop down and untie the thong of his sandals. I have baptized you with
water; but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.”
