Posted by Lee Gatiss, 23 Nov 2016

Lee Gatiss expounds the readings for the 1st Sunday of Advent (Year A), which are Isaiah 2.1–5, Romans 13.11–14, and Matthew 24.36–44.

The beginning of a new church year (Lectionary Year A) comes in Advent, as we prepare to remember in our readings the humble birth of our saviour, and look forward to his coming in glory.
