Advent: Biblical portraits of lives lived in anticipation of Jesus' coming.
Advent is the season in the church year leading up to Christmas. Advent means "coming" or "arrival" and so over the course of these four weeks we, as a church family, enter into the waiting and expectancy. We read the Old Testament prophesies foretelling Jesus' birth but we also read the prophesies of His second coming. In Advent we remember what it meant for Jesus to come to Earth as a human infant 2,000 years ago by leaning into the reality that right now, we are waiting for his second coming. This Advent we are studying several of the lesser known characters in the story of Christmas and learning what awaiting the birth of Jesus meant to them.
