Week one of Advent starts Sunday, November 28th. Advent is a season of the liturgical calendar when Christians observe a season of looking back at the birth of Jesus (first advent) while also looking ahead and longing for the return of Jesus (second advent). We invite you to this beautiful season of preparing our hearts for the coming of Jesus.
Advent 2021 Guide
The world we live in is full of “audible” evidence for God. We hear the indirect echoes of God’s voice as we walk through nature, experience the love of a friend, and play freely. When we hear these echoes, we are reminded of the way God intended things to be. We are also reminded that we want more of that goodness, but our world is broken and sinful. Things are not always good. We hear just the echo of what God has called us to be; the way He intends things to be.
In the season of Advent, we learn to see how God is starting to make things right. At the first advent, when Jesus came as a baby, Jesus set in motion the establishment of God’s Kingdom here on earth. And yet, we still await the second advent: when Jesus will return. On that day, we will no longer hear only the echoes of God’s design, but see Him face to face as His design becomes reality.
