Word for the Weekend of December 21


Image: The Annunciation by Tanner

I know everyone is busy about many things but a good way to slow down the frantic pace is to sit with the scriptures we'll hear on this coming weekend, the Fourth Sunday of Advent.

The texts and background material on them are here and hints for helping kids prepare to hear these scriptures can be found right here.

Every year the gospel on the last Sunday of Advent brings us to Mary, the Mother of Jesus. In the lectionary's Year B, we hear the story of the Annunciation - a beautiful way to prepare for celebrating Christ's birth on Christmas Day.
