The Three Sundays prior to Christmas: Zemene Sebket, Brhan and Nolawi

 
 
The Three Sundays preceding to The Feast of Nativity (Ldet) from Tahsas 7-27 (December 16-January 5) are known as Zemene Sebket (Season of Preaching): in which that talks about the prophecy that the prophets had about the incarnation of the Word (Son the God) whom is Saviour. Brhan (Light): During this season the prophets foretold the incarnation of God who is symbolized Light. Nolawi (Shepherd): and during this period the church teaches us about the True Shepherd who gave His life for the sake of HIs sheeps (children). In the three weeks of this season, we prepare with great expectation for the incarnation of Christ in a spirit of patience waiting for Hope.

Our church recognizes these three holidays as one of the minor feasts of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
