This is the sermon from last Sunday, the 2nd of Advent (I’m a little behind) and the shorter sermon from our second midweek service. The first one considers the prophecy from Isaiah 40, “A voice cries: ‘In the wilderness prepare the way of the LORD; make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Every valley shall be lifted up, and every mountain and hill be made low'” (v. 3-4a, the whole text being v. 1-11) in light of St. Mark’s introduction of John the Baptist (1:1-8). The second one discusses the first half of the Magnificat (Luke 1:46-50) in light of Ruth 4:9-17.
