This Sunday, November 27, marks the beginning of the season of Advent. Advent is the season of the Church Calendar that begins four Sundays before Christmas. It is a reminder of the people of God, long ago, waiting for the coming of the promised Messiah and of our own season of waiting for the return of Christ. The linked article by Richella Parnham is a reflection on the theme of Waiting. We pray it helps us all better to live into the promise and hope of the season.
