Preparation and Anticipation, Luke 1.26-38


This year, the fourth Sunday of Advent was also Christmas Eve. As such, our focus was on how all our preparation becomes anticipation when the time is right. Listen to find out about Israel's preparation and anticipation for the coming Messiah, whom we celebrate at Christmas.
