ADVENT!  The flow of the Advent season plays out like a movie.  We get a hint of the highlights as we begin Advent, and we are invited to stay tuned to what is to come.  Through the life and actions of John the Baptist, the scene and life of Jesus Christ is set up.  The suspense heightens in the middle of Advent as we witness through the lives of Elizabeth and Mary that nothing is impossible for God.  All this builds up to the climax of the Christmas story, where the Christ child is born, but not in a way that we would expect!  The twists and turns in the story invite us to wonder how we are called to participate in the story.  Invite others to join us as we prepare for the birth of the Christ child!
