Coming, The First Sunday of Advent

Advent is from the Latin word for "Coming." Christ is coming. This is the season we open our hearts to a tired couple and their faithful donkey, wise men, shepherds, angels and the Gift of The Father.

We prepare with Mary the clothing in which the Son of God will be received. He is not looking for silks. He is looking for souls.

Will your soul be His adornment this Christmas? Not fine enough? Let Jesus be the judge of that.

I offer you some places to rest and think in this season of busyness.

Even so, come, Lord Jesus (Revelations 22:20)

  1. I did not grow up with any tradition of Advent, but I am realizing it's something I want to observe. Thank you for the resources.
