Advent is the season of expectant waiting and preparation for celebrating Jesus’ birth and His coming again.  It has been several Sundays since I was in a worship service because of illness.  It was wonderful to be able to attend this past Sunday (Dec. 1, 2019) and see the Advent Wreath and candles.

I was reminded of all the years of serving in congregations where Advent was observed.  For me, it is an inspirational time of remembrance of the coming of Jesus in the way we all come into the world as a helpless baby.  It also inspires me to look forward to Jesus coming again as the King of kings and Lord of lords.

O Come, O Come Emmanuel…
