Advent 2020

Advent in the Christian calendar is a time of waiting. The four Sunday’s before Christmas day represent the patriarchs, (Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob), The prophets, the Mother Mary,  and John the Baptist. It is the time where we wait for the birth of Jesus at Christmas and how he came to change the world.
