We have once again come to one of my favorite seasons on the Christian calendar.
Advent (which comes from the Latin word “adventus”which means “coming”) is the season between Christ the King Sunday (Sunday, November 25th) and Christmastide. It includes the four Sundays in between and is a season that helps to prepare for the coming of the Christ child.
Our first Sunday of Advent is Sunday, December 2nd.
My sermon title will be “Hope” with Luke 21:25-36 as our scripture lesson. This traditional first Sunday of Advent passage takes place near the end of Jesus’ life. It’s a passage telling us about the second coming of Christ. It’s a message of hope which connects us back to Jesus’birth and the journey we all begin with Him.
