It’s That Time Again!
Black Friday- Cyber Monday. Cooking , shopping, baking. Much left to do !
Take a deep breathe. Relax. Don’t panic.
I’m talking about Advent.
Traditionally, it is a time when we reflect on the meaning of the coming of Jesus into the world.
We have a variety of ways we celebrate. It can involve lighting candles on an Advent Wreath or focusing on different parts of the Christmas Story each Sunday evening.
There are Christmas Concerts with at least one five year old picking their nose. Of course it was never your child.
It invariably involves a chocolate each day from the Advent Calendar we purchased at the dollar store. Yum!
Advent means the arrival , appearance, occurrence, dawn, origin, birth, rise, or development of something new, wonderful & often unexpected.
Advent is Experiencing
Who Is Already Here
Immanuel came to deal with real people whose lives were a mess .
Not much has changed.
We are still real people with messy lives.
We need to hear the good news .
