John the Baptist - a messenger preparing the way for the Lord

On the 2nd and 3rd Sunday of Advent we heard about John the Baptist and how he prepared a way for the Lord.  We try to follow his message today and think about what we can do to prepare a way for the Lord.

Here is St John the Baptist with his mother Mary, it is a small section of the 'Te Deum' window at the back of church.  Why not have a look at see if you can see it next time you are in church.

John reminds us that he is preparing for the Lord by being "a voice crying in the wilderness" How can we prepare a way for the Lord?
