Year C - Advent 2 or Needed Change 2
December 6, 2015
Try switching the language in verses 69-70: “G*D has raised up a mighty “prophet” for us in the house of David, as he spoke through the mouth of “saviors” from of old...”
How does that sit? Is it informing about our current role as Advent People?
Want to be engaged in mercy? Be a strong prophet! It is, and always has been, our leverage.
You, yes, you, will be called a prophet of G*D preparing another way to reveal a tender and strong mercy of forgiveness and forgiveness of mercy (be careful how you read that last phrase as it is all to easy to mis-take it).
Prophets give heart/light to those deathly afraid in the dark. Prophets paint in the dark with luminescent paint. Gentle your eyes to catch the glow of hope in the yet unseen.
