The Nativity fast started a while back and it will be Christmas very soon! It’s time to get ready!
Our beautiful church helps us get ready in many different ways. First, we have the fast, where we give up something earthly to get ready to celebrate Jesus’ birth for us. Then we have the Kiahk Praises which happen every Saturday night. These usually start very late on Saturday night and we end them with the liturgy very early on Sunday morning. You should ask your parents to attend at least one of them. Finally, during this time, we also think about Jesus’ second coming. We must never forget that this world and this life are only temporary and that we have something much greater to look forward to: Jesus and Heaven!
“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!” (Luke 2:14)
