Advent Journey

Advent Journey

It might be the most wonderful time of the year, but once Christmas is over we look back and wonder every single year, “Why did that go by so fast?!” It’s like from Thanksgiving to Christmas is a giant race of buying presents, wrapping presents, baking and cooking, gathering with family and friends, some we want to be with, some not, and then “POOF,” it’s over and a new year starts. It is a bit ironic that we have put such a fast pace on Christmas when Jesus would almost certainly tell us to slow down and enjoy life, especially his.

In the 400’s when the church was still relatively young, they were struggling with this in a similar way believe it or not. So, in order to put a special emphasis and value on the season when we celebrate Christ’s birth into the world, they came up with “Advent,” which simply means “arrival.” When Advent comes around it is an invitation to join one another in looking back to what God has already done, and looking forward to what God is going to do. It is a time of anticipation, expectant waiting, and contemplation. During this series, we examine some lessons that come from Advent and seeking after God during Advent.
