Scripture Reading: The Mountain of the Lord
And so, it starts. I love it when the Advent season begins on the first day of December because all the Advent calendars just kind of line up nicely, don’t they? Unfortunately, you know this time of year has become something of a chaotic mess as many of us would attest to. For those of us who follow the liturgical traditions and calendars and whatnot, this is the beginning of the Advent season. We’ve just concluded with our Thanksgiving holiday celebrations and we’re transitioning into Advent and then gradually we will move into Christmas. I think we all know where I’m going with this. It’s a challenge to you all to do your best to slow down, to be patient and tolerant.
