West End United Methodist Church

The Voice in the Wilderness

Speakers:Carol Cavin-Dillon
Topics:Advent, Children's moment, Sermon, Sunday service
As we’ve seen in previous weeks, Advent is a time of great anticipation. Yet, today we read about John the Baptist in the wilderness, addressing the people with, “You brood of vipers!” a jarring warning and call to repent. How do we understand such confrontation in the context of waiting for the arrival of the Christ child? (NOTE: Although the video begins with the Children’s Moment and sermon, once it starts you can scroll back to the beginning of the service if you want. The video of the entire service is available to watch.)
