December 2014

ADVENT—a time of preparation
The word Advent means "coming" or "arrival." The focus is the celebration of the birth of Jesus—the First Advent; and the anticipation of the return of Christ—his Second Advent.
Advent is more than marking a historical event, it is celebrating a truth about God; the revelation of God in Christ whereby all of creation might be reconciled to God. In this double focus on past and future, Advent can remind us of our own spiritual journey.
During this month, our teaching, our readings and our carols will reflect that Christ has come, that He is present in the world today, and that He will come again in power.
