In Parish tradition, the final Sunday of Advent is a Family Sunday. We gather around a manger and straw, from oldest to youngest, and recall the story of Jesus’ birth. This year, through songs and sketches and stories we remembered the way the Humble King is born into the world (and how different it is from any other royal birth announcement!). Family Pastor Sarah Fetz shares the homily, helping us see that Jesus’ birth was actually his first teaching to us.
