Lee on the Lectionary: First Sunday of Advent (Year C)

Posted by Lee Gatiss, 28 Nov 2018

The beginning of Advent is upon us, the new liturgical year (Year C in the lectionary). Advent is a period of waiting and eager expectation in the Christian calendar. Strangely for many, however, we look forward at this point in the year not to Christmas and the celebration of the incarnation, but to the second coming of Christ in glory to judge the living and the dead.

This week’s readings are Jeremiah 33:14-16, 1 Thessalonians 3:9-13, and Luke 21:25-36.

You can follow along with these video expositions on the Lee on the Lectionary Facebook page. We also tweet the video link every Sunday morning at 6am for those who like a morning exposition of the word to begin the week. Follow us @churchsociety.

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