Sunday song: 2nd Advent

Matthew 3: 1-6
In those days 
John the Baptist appeared in the wilderness of Judea, 
proclaiming, ‘Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.’ 
This is the one of whom the prophet Isaiah spoke when he said,
‘The voice of one crying out in the wilderness:
“Prepare the way of the Lord,
   make his paths straight.”
Now John wore clothing of camel’s hair 
with a leather belt around his waist, 
and his food was locusts and wild honey. 
Then the people of Jerusalem 
and all Judea were going out to him, 
and all the region along the Jordan, 
and they were baptized by him in the river Jordan, 
confessing their sins. 

Advent: prepare - people, get ready...
