In a little less than a week, we will begin the Nativity Fast.
So what are you doing to prepare yourself?
Perhaps you will speak to your priest and your family about how you should fast this year. Perhaps you are planning a holiday gathering. Perhaps you’re attending a community celebration, or selecting a book to read during the 40-day path to Nativity. Perhaps you’ll be visiting a family member who is ill.
Very soon, we will all be biting our nails with anticipation of the coming of Christ. There will be Advent Paraklesis to attend. The light will fade; we will wake while it is still dark and sleep long after dark has settled in again.
And soon after that, the Light will come.
Are you ready for the journey?
