Event description

Description

Though the season of Advent emerges at the darkest time of our calendar year, it is a liturgical season filled with light, hope and joy. Like the season of Easter, Advent invites us to fully enter into its hopeful and joy-filled spirit, beginning Symbolically with the Annunciation to Mary of Christ’s coming arrival into our world. It is through the darkness especially - because of it - that Christ is coming to be with us.

How we are to prepare for the Announciation through the everyday experiences of our lives. This will be a time to ponder such questions:

  • If we believe we are made in the image of God what difference does this make in our attitudes and lives?

  • Can we allow ourselves to be more fully immersed in the trupe spirit of this Advent Season?

  • If we believe we share Jesus’ Good News by using the gifts that God gave us, what are the practical implications of this belief?

  • How do the Advent and Christmas seasons help us appreciate God’s desire that we share his love with others?
