Lectionary Year B - First Sunday In Advent

This week's Lectionary readings are:
  • Isaiah 64:1-9

  • Psalm 80:1-7, 17-19

  • 1 Corinthians 1:3-9

  • Mark 13:24-37

In the Isaiah reading, the author is asking God to make himself known. (Perhaps in a more angry form than I, or most Universalists, would normally think of.) How easy it would be to be a believer if God did appear to us and perform "awesome deeds"!
