On this First Sunday of Advent we will hear from the prophet Jeremiah. During the particularly dark and troubled times of the Babylonian exile, Jeremiah speaks both of the people's transgressions against God's intentions for the world and the hopeful future when God will once again restore the people's relationship to God. Advent is a time of waiting: waiting for the promised Messiah, and waiting for the fulfillment of God's eternal promises of mercy, love, and righteousness. We will discuss these elements of God's promises in the context of our Advent season. (note: for additional information about the context of the life and times of the prophet Jeremiah, please read the additional guide, "Jeremiah's Context" below).
