The Start of a Journey through Advent
Doesn’t it feel like it should still be somewhere in the summer? The year went by awfully fast. I intend to slow it down about bit in the next couple of weeks. I will be writing a devotional everyday as we look and explore this season that we are in. Tonight is a quick intorduction to advent, which is Rev. Dr. Mark Roberts describes
In Advent, we’re reminded of how much we ourselves also need a Savior, and we look forward to our Savior’s second coming even as we prepare to celebrate his first coming at Christmas. The word “Advent” comes from the Latin word adventus, which means “coming” or “visit.” In the season with this name, we keep in mind both “advents” of Christ, the first in Bethlehem and the second yet to come.
For a deeper introduction to Advent go here. Tomorrow starts the first Sunday in Advent. I hope you will join me in this journey through Advent as we explore what it really means and what it means to each of us.
