2011 Advent Hat Knit-Along

O Come, O Come, Immanuel,
And ransom captive Israel,
Who mourn in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear.

Advent is about anticipation: Jesus is coming! Remembering the wait for Christ’s birth two thousand years ago helps us live into our current waiting for Christ’s return.
