Today marks the first Sunday of the Advent season, the 4 Sunday’s prior to Christmas. In these four weeks Christians prepare themselves for the coming of the Redeemer and, in order, consider Hope, Love, Joy, and Peace- all which God alone can grant.
Advent, unlike Lent, is worthy of all Christian’s observance. Lent manifests a heretical belief that merit can be earned, whilst Advent stresses the Grace of God as our only source of good.
Have a fine Advent One.
