Christmas

 

Advent

A churchy word with great meaning

It is here; you can see it all around you: holiday sales in every store, songs on the radio, lights being hung all around. So how do we make sure we keep Christ at the center of this Christmas season?

Advent is a beautiful way to be intentional as we walk through this busy, festive time of year. The intention of advent is to interrupt our busy schedules and make space for us to prepare our hearts for the true meaning of Christmas and allows us to check out the stature of our hearts. Advent means “coming” or “arrival” and preparation to celebrate the birth of Jesus the Christ.
