Advent is an opportunity to pause and reflect on the birth of Jesus. It is best described as “a season of waiting, expecting and hoping.” It is a time where we celebrate the arrival and coming of Jesus during the Christmas season. It begins on the last Sunday of November and concludes on Christmas Eve/Day. Think of Advent as a long introduction to Christmas. A prologue to the culmination of God’s divine plan to send his son to earth as our refuge, hope and savior.
