Second Sunday of Advent – Series C

Last week we joked that the modern celebration of Advent should rename the candles. This would be the Amazon or the Target candle I think this week. If our worship really reflected the age, we would hand out a coupon for some great deal at a big box store. But of course something sounds wrong about that. We are not homo emptor (buying man) but watching the bedlam which is Black Friday from the comfort of my living room, I am hard pressed to say that we are homo sapiens (wise/thinking man) either. Having spent the day in proper thanksgiving for all the blessings we have, we turn around on Black Friday and get into a fist fight with someone over cheap underwear.
