Advent: the arrival of a notable person, thing, or event.
It is not just any notable person that we are “waiting” the arrival of!  God became flesh in baby Jesus, born to Mary and Joseph on what we call Christmas morning.  Church tradition calls the four weeks leading up to Christmas the Advent Season.  We spend time focusing in on the miracle of Jesus’ birth and also recognizing that Jesus will one day return again, not as a baby but the redeemer of the world.  
Advent Resources:  Below are links to a variety of Advent Devotionals.  We’d love for you to find something that worked for you and spend time each day/week “waiting” for Christmas morning!
