Advent historically has been a season that the Church anticipates Christ’s second return, as my husband Seth reminded me in his first Advent sermon this past week. And yet we now during this Christmas season focus more on Christ’s first coming – his incarnation into human form – “God made flesh” — and that is if we remember to celebrate Christ at all!
So you, like me, are probably looking for ways to fully enter into the Advent season. This link to Advent 2008 – Mars Hill Daily Bible Readings is a great list of Advent readings to meditate on in anticipation of Christmas AND of preparation for Christ’s sure and final coming. Enjoy! And I’d love to hear your reflections, too, throughout this season.
