Advent Page Banner

Advent is a season of remembrance and anticipation. During the four Sundays before Christmas, we remember the first coming of Christ - the baby, born of a virgin, who came to shine light into the darkness. We recount the Old Testament prophecies which foretold the coming of the Messiah, our rescuer and redeemer. However, we also anticipate Christ's second advent, his second coming when all things will be made new, when the wolf will lie down with the lamb, when there will be no more tears and no more sorrow. Until that day, we live in the tension of the already and the not yet. We live in light of the reality that Christ has come and Christ will come again. In addition, celebrating Advent allows us time and space, a season rather than one day to remember and recall all of the promises of our Lord:  past, present, and future.
