FCC-What is the Meaning of Advent?

What is the meaning of Advent? When you think of Christmas Advent, you may think of festive calendars with treats inside to mark one more day closer to Christmas! Christmas means celebrating Christ entering the world. Many times we can get caught up in the stresses of shopping, planning, and miss the meaning of Christmas. The same can be said for Advent!

Advent is the expectant waiting & joyful preparation for God entering our hearts and lives.

Advent is a time to remind us that waiting can bring joy, as well as hopeful anticipation. It’s a special time to set aside daily in prayer to welcome Jesus into our lives, and look forward to his return while also celebrating his birth.
