Luke 3:1-6Prepare for God’s coming 
Luke 3:1-6

In the fifteenth year of Tiberius Caesar's reign, when Pontius Pilate was governor of Judaea, Herod tetrarch of Galilee, his brother Philip tetrarch of the territories of Ituraea and Trachonitis, Lysanias tetrarch of Abilene, 2 and while the high-priesthood was held by Annas and Caiaphas, the word of God came to John the son of Zechariah, in the desert.

3 He went through the whole Jordan area proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins, 4 as it is written in the book of the sayings of Isaiah the prophet: 
A voice of one that cries in the desert: 
Prepare a way for the Lord, 
make his paths straight!
5 Let every valley be filled in, 
every mountain and hill be levelled, 
winding ways be straightened 
and rough roads made smooth,
6 and all humanity will see the salvation of God.

3. A moment of prayerful silence
