This Sunday is the 1st Sunday in the 'Advent' Season. What is Advent you Ask? Here is a short answer that might be helpful: Since the fourth century, the Church has celebrated the season of Advent (which means “coming” or “arrival”) starting on the fourth Sunday before Christmas day. The celebration of Advent helps us focus our attention on Jesus Christ’s birth and ministry as well as his promised return. (taken from 2010 Advent devotional Christ the King Presbyterian Church)
Here are some great Advent resources from Cardiphonia.
