an Advent Responsive Reading

Emmanuel (God with us):

Pastor:           Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign:

All:      The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.  (Is 7:14)

Rod (Branch of Jesse):

Pastor:           A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse;

All:                from his roots a Branch will bear fruit.  (Is 11:1)

Pastor:           In that day the Root of Jesse will stand as a banner for the peoples;

All:                the nations will rally to him, and his place of rest will be glorious.  (Is 11:10)

Pastor:           “I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches.

All:      I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.”  (Rev 22:16)


Key of David:

Pastor:           I will place on his shoulder the key to the house of David;

All:      what he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open.  (Is 22:22)               


Pastor:           All this also comes from the LORD Almighty,
All:                wonderful in counsel and magnificent in wisdom.  (Is 28:29)

  1. Hello, I find your blog site to be very intresting. I want to encourage you to have an area for Spanish Worship. Spanish worship in the WELS is becoming more and more a part of worship life in manyWELS churches nation wide.

    1. Pastor, That’s an interesting idea but I do not have the language skills needed. Perhaps there might be a bilingual member at your church who might be interested in translating some of my posts so that the Spanish speaking population can benefit as well. I would be happy to post a few Spanish translations at this site if we can work something out. Perhaps it might warrant its own BLOG if it becomes popular.
