Posted by Lee Gatiss, 8 Nov 2017

Our readings this week teach that a final cataclysmic day of reckoning is coming, for which prepared Christians can hope, while others ought to fear.

The lectionary readings for the 3rd Sunday before Advent (Year A) are Amos 5:18-24, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, and Matthew 25:1-13. In this short video, Lee Gatiss expounds those readings for us today.

You can also follow along with these video expositions at

Did you know we also tweet the video link every Sunday morning at 6am? Follow us via @churchsociety.

Revd Dr Lee Gatiss is the Director of Church Society and a weekly columnist in the Church of England Newspaper.
