Advent Explained

03 Dec

The Christian Advent Season focuses on the fulfillment of God’s promise to send a Savior – Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

  • For some, it is an incredibly festive time set aside to marvel and give thanks to God. Gift-giving and receiving; sharing meals, displaying bright, colorful decorations, and listening to, and, singing upbeat secular songs symbolize the festive part of Advent.
  • For others, like Lent, Advent is a time of penance. For them, Advent is marked by spending more time than is typical for them:  reading Scripture, praying for guidance; interceding for others; singing hymns that tell the Christmas story; reenacting  the birth of Christ as depicted in Scripture, not as shown in movies, and giving more than is usual. Advent week 1 2017
