Tonight we read about the visit of the angel, Gabriel, to Zechariah.
We heard that Zechariah's wife, Elizabeth, will bear a child in her old age. We heard that he will be the one to turn the hearts of the Fathers to their children, the one who will prepare a people for the LORD, the one fulfilling the prophecy we read about in Malachi.
Tonight, at my mother's request, we sang a carol as well. There's something about carols that really makes it feel like Christmas!
