â€œWhere have all the flowers gone?â€ Baabara the sheep wants to know when she visits the garden on the second Sunday of Advent. â€œTo everything there is a season and a time for every purpose under heaven.â€ John the Baptist came to prepare the world for the coming of Jesus. Advent is a time of waiting and preparation. And, as Baabara learns, the flowers in the garden prepare in their own way for the coming of spring. How are you preparing, during this Advent, for the coming of Jesus?
Scripture Reference: Mark 1: 1-8 â€œâ€˜Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.â€™â€ Lectionary Reading – Year B – 2nd Sunday of Advent
