Church Season: Advent

An Advent Service of Lament and Hope

Advent is both a wonderful and a challenging liturgical season.  We begin a new church year while the world is busy finishing a calendar year – and the month is filled with shopping, pageants, and parties beyond what our energy and time can handle.  But while society urges to hurry and spend, scripture and tradition beckon us to slow down and wait.  Congregational leaders have an important and particular responsibility- and yes, challenge- to help members and themselves focus and wait.

Though all of us are tempted to act otherwise, now is the time for slowing down and leaning together.  As with the ancients, we gather in the darkness to wait for the light.

Advent is a season of anticipation and longing.  As a lament psalm, Psalm 80 expresses longing for restoration and renewal.  Psalm 80 is the only psalm appointed sometime during Advent in all three lectionary cycles, with verse 7 always functioning as the refrain:  “Let your face shine upon us, and we shall be saved.”
