Prepare the way of the Lord

John the Baptist looms large in Advent lessons and hymns. His fiery words build a bridge to the Old Testament Prophets who foretold Messiah's birth and also project the urgent preparation for Christ's return.

The great window of Calvary Cathedral, Sioux Falls, was installed in memory of South Dakota's first Bishop, William Hobart Hare. It expresses his missionary zeal to go and announce Christ outside of the settled, secure places in which most people conduct "normal" life.
