“The word advent means “coming.” In this season of the year, we focus on the meaning of the coming of the Son of God into the world.

Jesus came into the world at the first Advent, and every Advent since is a reminder of his continual advent into more and more lives. And that advent is, in fact, our advent—our coming, our moving into the lives of those around us and into the peoples of the world.”
