This Sunday is the first Sunday of Advent, the season of anticipation, of hope, of preparation.
What are we waiting for?
What are we hoping for?
What are we preparing for?
“A voice cries out:
“In the wilderness prepare the way of the Lord,
make straight in the desert a highway for our God.
Every valley shall be lifted up,
and every mountain and hill be made low;
the uneven ground shall become level,
and the rough places a plain.
Then the glory of the Lord shall be revealed,
and all people shall see it together,
for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”
Are we preparing the way of the Lord?
