In this episode, we consider the readings for Advent 3, Year B:

Isaiah 61:1-4, 8-11; Psalm 126 or Canticle 15; 1 Thessalonians 5:16-24; John 1:6-8, 19-28.

We consider Isaiah's prophecy of hope, the Psalm's longing for restoration, the benediction to the Thessalonians to stay in it, and John the Baptist's identity as a voice in the wilderness.
