2016 12 04 Advent 2: The Parable of the Fire

Into the jingle of early Christmas bells and the hustle and bustle of the holiday preparation, the voice of John the Baptist speaks of a different preparation. In this sermon on Isaiah 11 and Matthew 3, Father Paul Wheatley uses the image of fires in Texas grasslands to frame the image of the one John proclaims to come baptizing with the Holy Spirit and fire.
