Today is the second Sunday in Advent.  During this season we will be finding out what certain people in the Christmas story were looking for. Today we look at what Mary and Joseph were looking for.  Two teenagers just starting out their marriage and they are hit with some major news.  How could they find peace in something that was not a part of their plan?
