As we think about the second week of Advent, we are invited to ponder the question… what now?

The scriptures we have in front of us this week are…

Isaiah 40:1–11

Psalm 85:1–2, 8–13

2 Peter 3:8–15a

Mark 1:1–8

I think the tension in this question with these scriptures in front of us is, how do we view our faith, it is personal and private or is it a shared and public faith?

As we think about who we are as a community at Marion, we are guided by a statement that includes… “actively INVITING the faces we see each day into the Way of Jesus”. 

What does actively inviting mean to you?

What do you think actively inviting meant to John the Baptist? 

What can we learn from John the Baptist? 

Was John’s style too bold for you? 

How society today be drawn to John’s style? 

This question of what now… what should we be doing during this season of waiting?  What does this mean for us?

Let’s talk about this on Sunday.
