For hundreds of years, the Church has referred to the weeks leading up to Christmas and the celebration of Christ’s incarnation as Advent. Derived from the Hebrew word ‘adventus’, meaning “COMING”, advent creates a rhythm for us as followers of Jesus to slow down our lives and allow Jesus’ origin story to center us on the truest definitions of hope, peace, love and joy. We will spend each of the four weekends leading up to Christmas walking through how Christ’s birth keeps us centered on God’s purpose and mission of redeeming a world back to Himself.
Challenge: Don’t allow this Christmas season to pass by without pausing to find true life in the greatest story of all!
The discussion questions for the next 4 weeks will be found in the Documents section of this blog.
