The Second Sunday of Advent reminds us to be mindful of our actions during this moment of reflection. While it’s important to honor the upcoming birth of Jesus, this day also tells us to be present in every moment in life. John the Baptizer was featured in a Gospel reading at my church this afternoon. In this specific passage, John advises people to stay mindful of their actions, for it makes a marked impact in one’s future. Celebrating Advent is a time for deep preparation and anticipation.
