Just Joy

Joy that is Just comes from the depths of our experience not just from those moments of euphoric bliss or emotional froth.
As we understand God’s action in the world there is also an ethical dimension which John the Baptiser points us to.
Why else would the compliers of the lectionary and the liturgists have made the 3rd Sunday of Advent the place to acknowledge Joy in the world alongside the proclamation of the Baptiser?
