The Season of Advent
The church year begins again with the season of Advent—a time of preparation and expectation for the coming celebration of our Lord's nativity, and for the final coming of Christ "in power and glory." We take the four Sundays before Christmas to wait in expectation for the coming of Jesus—the word advent itself means “coming.” The traditions of Advent include progressively lighting the candles on the Advent wreath—one more each Sunday until all four are lit on the Sunday before Christmas. The Advent wreath reminds us that Jesus is the light coming into the world.
Advent is a season of hope—the hope for Christ's coming now and the ultimate hope of his Second Coming.
