What is Advent?

The word advent means coming, and during this season we wait, we prepare, we anticipate, and we long for the presence of God. In a blog post, Sarah Bessey wrote, “If Christmas is for the joy, advent is for the longing.” We all know that Christmas doesn’t feel the same this year; maybe you expect it to be your worst Christmas yet. But, if advent is for the longing, it might be your best advent yet. This year, you might be more in touch with your longing for hope, peace, joy, and love than ever before. We pray that during this season, as you tune into that longing and focus your attention on Jesus, you find your heart overwhelmed with hope, peace, joy, and love.
