The Benedictus: The Song Born of Silence

First Sunday of Advent ~ Sunday, December 1st, 2019

In first-century Israel, many people believed that God had been silent for a very long time. But that simply wasn’t the case. The people had become complacent. God spoke through the prophets, Isaiah and Jeremiah, Amos and Micah, and the other Old Testament prophets. But Israel grew deaf and ignored their words. At times they even killed the prophets who challenged them to live up to their calling. They chased not only foreign gods but became addicted through distraction. They cast out those who judged them. So God seemed silent but God wasn’t really silent. God just couldn’t be heard above the din of their own noise. The people had forgotten how to listen.
