December 2nd - December 24th
The word advent means “coming” or “arriving.” Christmas is when we celebrate the coming or arriving of God: first, in the world when Jesus was born in Bethlehem; second, in our hearts, our family, and our church as we live in Christ; third, in the future—somewhere down the road—Jesus will return to fix everything that’s broken, and live with us forever. Advent is what we call the four weeks of preparation leading up to Christmas. The purpose of this practice is to prepare our hearts for Christmas, so we can celebrate and ponder the mystery and wonder of Jesus' birth. You don’t have to understand everything. All you need is an open heart, and a cheerful attitude. Listen for God’s voice and take part with a happy heart.
