The First Sunday of Advent, Consecration Sunday ~ Dec. 2, 2018


The First Sunday of Advent, Consecration Sunday

Then he told them a parable: “Look at the fig tree and all the
trees; as soon as they sprout leaves you can see for yourselves
and know that summer is already near. So also, when you see
these things taking place, you know that the kingdom of God
is near. Truly I tell you, this generation will not pass away
until all things have taken place. Heaven and earth will pass
away, but my words will not pass away.

— Luke 21:29-32
