Restoring joy — Missional Meditations

By Joe Sawatzky
Wednesday, December 9, 2020

Looking at the scriptures with an eye toward mission.

Joe Sawatzky shares a Missional Meditation entitled, "Restoring joy," based on the Revised Common Lectionary for December 13, the third Sunday in Advent. God's appearing restores our joy and sends us with the joy that restores. 

  • John 1:6-8, 19-28 
  • Isaiah 61:1-4, 8-11 
  • Psalm 126 
  • 1 Thessalonians 5:16-24 


This was initially streamed on December 8, 2020.
