Advent and Christmas


Advent. One small word that holds such significance.


While Advent represents one of the most holy seasons on our Christian calendar, it’s an equally positive term in mainstream society. Advent is synonymous with words such arrival, appearance, emergence, occurrence, birth,
rise and coming. These words offer a powerful realization as we celebrate the coming of Jesus. Regardless of where we find ourselves on this planet, regardless of our circumstances, each one of us has equal access to the gift that is Jesus’s arrival in our world. All we have to do is claim it.

During this season of Advent we know that one bright light is ever present, always ready to lead the way forward. This is our hope, this is our shared Advent celebration.
