Advent 2015 – Week 1 – Sunday

What is Advent? Derived from the Latin word meaning “coming” or “arrival” Advent begins on the fourth Sunday before Christmas. It’s the season when we look back to Christ’s first coming, as a baby born in Bethlehem, and look forward to his second coming when he will return to renew and redeem every part of fallen creation.

For many people, the weeks leading up to Christmas are busy ones. But our invitation to you is to slow down and spend a few moments each day reading these reflections.

Watch : this video from The Advent Conspiracy. It’s an invitation to make Advent a more meaningful season:
