Finding joy in a challenging year can be difficult, but we can always find joy in the Lord. Here is my sermon for the Third Sunday of Advent, Gaudete Sunday.
Isaiah promised that a great light would shine into the darkness of his world. In this sermon, I reflect on the ways in which Jesus brings light to a world that still often walks in darkness.
I didn't preach on Sunday, so here is a "bonus sermon" from 2017, when I was deeply honored to be invited to preach at the Lutheran Church in Matamba, Tanzania while on a mission trip there.
