Advent Reading Week 4

Advent is a season of waiting. For thousands of years our fallen world waited anxiously for the coming of the Messiah, the one who would rescue mankind from sin and wrath. This season of Advent (Latin for “coming”) is celebrated during the weeks leading up to the birth of Jesus on Christmas Day.

Why Celebrate Advent

"Thousands of years of human history involved looking forward to a promised messiah who would make things right in the world. Living on the other side of the incarnation, it can be easy for us to forget how desperate our situation was without a Savior."

Advent and Celebration

"By focusing in on what wasn’t there to celebrate, we create space for a true and deep celebration on what was in a manger on Christmas Day."
