Advent Week 1: The Arrival of a Notable Person...

Ad·vent, /'ad, vent/ noun: "The arrival of a notable person, thing or event." The historic church annually celebrated a season of "Advent" during the Sundays preceding Christmas.  The longer we are alive, it's possible to take for granted the miracle of God being born to a virgin, allowing the extraordinary to become ordinary. This advent season, let's remember, as a church, the significance of God becoming a man; celebrating the hope that is in Jesus, and encouraging each other to love as He loves us.
