This Sunday is the beginning of Advent. Advent marks the start of a season of preparation that looks forward to the celebration of Christmas and the second coming of Christ. It is a time of reflection in preparing our hearts for the coming of Christ—we remember how Jesus humbled Himself to be born as a baby and live among those He would save. This season invokes feelings of expectation and hope! It is a time of great joy and excitement for our children. We see signs of Christmas everywhere. Each year the signs and symbols of Christmas seem to arrive earlier and earlier. However, we should not lose sight of Advent as a time of preparation for the coming of Christ. We should prepare our hearts, and our relationship with Jesus and with each other, just as much as we prepare our homes and families for the celebration of Christmas. This year especially, Advent should be a time of great hope in a future that we hope is brighter than this past year, especially for those people living with such hardships that the challenges of 2020 have provided.
