Zechariah: As Advent ends (December 24th) a new Advent begins (without skipping a beat, as it were). The reading from Zechariah speaks of the second coming of the LORD, all mankind because He has roused Himself from His holy habitation. The choice of term “roused” leave me with an impression of work to finish – not necessarily a good thing. Happy Christmas.
Gospel: John 3:31-36
