From Latin, adventus | ad ‘to’ + venire ‘come’
The arrival of a notable person. The coming or second coming of Jesus Christ.
Advent begins 4 Sundays before Christmas Day (This year, 2023, Advent starts on December 3) and is a season of expectation and preparation as we prepare to celebrate the coming advent of Jesus Christ in his incarnation, and look ahead to his final advent as judge at the end of time.
These 5 short devotions (including one on Christmas Day) can be used as an individual or with your family to help you reflect over the kindness of God and why Jesus came and will come again.
Each devotion is also available as a short video.
First Sunday – O Come, O Come, Emmanuel
Second Sunday – Come Tho Long Expected Jesus
Third Sunday – Joy To The World
Fourth Sunday – O Little Town Of Bethlehem
Christmas Day – O Holy Night
