What is Advent?

Sara Borgstede : 

We prepare. Yes, during Advent we prepare our hearts for Christmas. Just as important, we prepare for when Christ will come again on the Last Day, the judgement day spoke about in Revelation and other parts of the Bible. Whether that is after we die or while we are still alive, that is an important day for all people. We hope all people will know Jesus and come to the knowledge of the truth. (1 Timothy 2:4).

So we can say the coming of Christ has 3 parts — past, present, and future. Christ came as a baby to Bethlehem. He comes to us today through his Word and Sacraments (baptism and Holy Communion), and we look forward to his coming again on the Last Day.

What Are Ways to Celebrate Advent?

Worship

Many mainline churches have worship services during the week during the Advent seasons, in addition to Sundays. These worship services are a wonderful way to step aside from the Christmas hustle and focus on the true meaning of the Christmas season — the baby born in Bethlehem who is the Savior of the world.

My real name is Debra (Debbie Sue). Sarah is a nickname given to me in high school. My husband has always called me that so here in Florida It's all I am known by. I was born and raised in Illinois. My son and I moved to Colorado in 1982. I taught school for 17 years. Then I ran a homeschooling/preschool/daycare until 2006 when I moved to Florida after my son, Bobby died suddenly. He was almost 26. Danny and I live and work at a state park here. I miss the mountains and climate of Colorado. I miss snow and the four seasons. I miss Bobby.
