Just a short sharing about what advent is all about..
Advent usually observed in many churches as a time of expectant waiting and preparation for the celebration of the Jesus at Christmas
The theme of readings and teachings during Advent is often to prepare for the Second Coming while commemorating the First Coming of Christ at Christmas. With the view of directing the thoughts of Christians to the first coming of Jesus Christ as savior and to his second coming as judge, special readings are prescribed for each of the four Sundays in Advent. Same goes with the worship songs usually.
Advent usually goes on for 4 weeks before Christmas so this year it begins on 1st-2nd Dec weekend.
So.. hopefully this season prepares everyone for Christmas as it is all about JESUS!
