What is Advent?

Advent is a period of roughly 4 weeks leading up to Christmas. If you’re unfamiliar with Advent, it is a season of anticipation. (Think “adventure,” which actually comes from the same latin root.)

During Advent, we prepare for Christ’s arrival. We remind ourselves that all is not right in the world, and what we need most is not a thing but a person.

We need a savior.

Not presents. Presence.

When Christmas arrives, we’ll celebrate the fulfillment of God’s promises about the messiah. Until then we wait. We hope. We pray.

And we make sure our hearts are still open to receive Christ. Because he will show up.
