Sunday, December 9

Today was the second Sunday in Advent.  It was a good day, the sun came out and everybody felt pretty good.

Here are a couple of pics of our Advent set up.

building our creche -- I think we are a little out of order
For our devotion we use the Advent series of the Little Gospels.  It is part of three collections of devotions used by the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd.  It is just a lovely little series.

Today's candle represented faith.  We talked about Mary and the Angel coming to visit to announce that she was going to have a baby.  We sort of decided that Mary must have had the most faith of anybody in the world -- I mean, think about it -- you wake up and there is an angel in your room -- one you can see -- and talk to and you are told you are going to have a baby that is going to be the most important person ever --- and you are 14 years old, well,  she must have had faith beyond measure.

It was a good day.
