THIRD SUNDAY OF ADVENT

This Sunday (December 6) is the third Sunday of Advent, a season of anticipation for the coming of Christ that gives us purpose to live in hope regardless of the many challenges and vicissitudes that face us. John the Baptist is the greatest Advent figure (read Matthew, Chapter 3 and Luke, Chapter 3). In the Armenian Church tradition this period of waiting is known as Hisnag —the fifty day period that leads to the celebration of Christ’s Nativity and Epiphany on January 6.
