For over 1500 years, the church at large has seen opportunities for reflection and wonder in the story of Jesus through seasons of the year. These seasons typically start with Advent and end after Pentecost with ordinary time. Sometimes the church calendar can be seen as legalistic or ritualistic, but joining with the overall body of believers for over a thousand years in remembrance of Jesus can be a beautiful exercise. While we won’t follow the other parts of the calendar for this coming year, Advent is a time of beauty and reflection as we await the coming of Christ. For 400 years, the people of Israel waited after the last words of the prophets for the coming of the Messiah. Advent is a season of desperation coming to fruition through a season of hope as Christ is made known as Emmanuel, God with Us.
