Advent is the season of preparation for Christmas that began Sunday, Dec. 2, and ends on Christmas Eve.
"Jesus promises in Advent to come to us in His means of grace," Harrison says in the one-minute video available on the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod web site. "He came to Bethlehem and He will come again. No matter what the world throws at us, no matter how challenging for us to be Christians in this day and age, have no fear, little flock," Harrison says.
