Waiting in Silence

Speakers:Rev. Dr. Carol Cavin-Dillon
Topics:Advent, Sermon, Sunday service
In today’s scripture, the priest, Zechariah, sings with joy at the naming of his and Elizabeth’s new son, John. These are the first words he has been able to utter since he was silenced, nine months earlier, when the angel told him they would bear this child, and Zechariah seemed to express disbelief. Was his silence punishment, or is there another side to such silence? (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.)
