Advent is one of the most recognized seasons in the Church Calendar. Many individuals, regardless of religion, have used an Advent calendar. You may recognize those small windows that count-down the days until Christmas.
The days leading to Christmas, Advent is about awaiting the arrival of the Messiah. We don't appear to be very good at it, though. What we often refer to as "Advent" (or arrival) looks quite different from what the intent is for this season.
This year, join us from Thanksgiving Weekend through Christmas Eve. We'll be celebrating the Advent of Hope, Peace, Love, Joy, and Christ!
