First Sunday of Advent (Year B)


For those opting for Year B this year ...

Isaiah 64:1-9
Psalm 80:1-7, 17-19
1 Corinthians 1:3-9
Mark 13:24-37

God is faithful!  Come together and wait for the advent of the Lord.
We lack nothing for the vigil.  We keep watch and wait.
Stay awake!  For you do not know when the Lord will return.
With signs in the heavens,
with power and glory, Christ will come.
Take heart!  By the grace of God you have been blessed.
We will endure to the end, that we may be found blameless
when Jesus Christ comes again.

Eternal God, who comes to us in different forms and at different times,
we await your coming again: Let the heavens be opened!
Let every creature on earth behold your grandeur and your glory!
We anticipate your arrival with worship in our hearts,
with eager, expectant eyes, and with lives ready to be changed
by your holy presence among us.

For the rest of this liturgy, see When Heaven Stands Open.
