I introduced John as a herald…explaining what exactly a herald's task was…the one sent ahead to announce an important coming event. The word did not get lost in the sermon, as one of my younger parishioners looked up at his grandmother and asked, “Who is Harold?”
I was thrilled that the little guy was listening.
God is still sending Harolds today. Who is heralding Jesus for you?
Happy 10th day of Advent!
