A is for Advent

Good evening!

It’s the first day of December, which means that Advent has arrived!

I put up Sophie’s advent calendar this evening. It’s been in the works for a few days and isn’t quite finished but it looks good hanging on the back of our dining room door!

During advent, I’ll be posting each day about the happenings around here in the run-up to Christmas, and about the Christmas story and its true meaning.

Advent is a season of waiting. It leads up to the celebration of the birth of Jesus, God himself coming into the world. We have a whole month each year to remember and reflect on this amazing act.

In John 2:49, Nathaniel says to Jesus: ‘Rabbi, you are the Son of God, you are the King of Israel’. Advent reminds us that, as the Jewish people were waiting and watching for their Messiah to appear, we are also waiting for our King to reappear.

I wish you a blessed advent season.
