FIRST SUNDAY OF ADVENT SEASON

Sunday, November 29, 2020


, TX 

The liturgical calendar year of the church begins with
the season of Advent. This season of Advent begins
on Sunday, November 29th. The word “Advent” means
“coming” or “arrival”, and the focus of the season is the
celebration of the birth of Jesus the Christ in his First
Advent, as well as the anticipation of the return of Christ
the King in his Second Advent. In this double focus on
past and future, Advent symbolizes the spiritual journey
of individuals and a congregation, as they affirm that
Christ has come, that He is present in the world today,
and that He will come again in power. This provides a
basis for holy living arising from a profound sense that we live "between the times" and
are called to be faithful stewards of what is entrusted to us as God’s people,
confessing our own responsibility to "love the Lord your God with all your heart" and to
"love your neighbor as yourself."
