  • Introduction

    Advent is a time of anticipation 

    For those who haven’t celebrated Advent before, Advent means the arrival of a notable person or thing. It takes place the four weeks, traditionally on Sundays, leading up to Christmas Day and while the month before Christmas can be full of parties, good food, shopping, and programs, celebrating Advent can help to keep the busy month focused and meaningful. I think this is why, year after year, I feel the tug to celebrate and incorporate something...a devotional, some Scripture, several minutes of slowing join the saints from long ago, to remember and recall the long-awaited arrival of our newborn Savior as well as to anticipate the arrival of our returning King. If you feel those tugs as well, I invite you to join me to celebrate Christ and observe Advent, this Christmas season.
