A Video and Advent Reflection with Kelly Wright
I didn’t grow up observing advent. Except that one year we had a Charlie Brown Advent calendar that hung on the fridge that was more or less a way to count down the days to Christmas. My family definitely celebrated Christmas, but Advent is a newer tradition for me.
The observation of Advent is not so much a countdown to Christmas, but a time to prepare our hearts for the Christmas season. It’s not just celebrating one day, but four weeks of reflecting on Jesus’s coming then, now, and in the future. Advent begins this year on Sunday, November 28 and lasts until Christmas Eve.
Listen in the video below as Kelly shares a few thoughts on how to prepare room in our hearts and lives this Advent season. You can read the rest of Kelly’s message here.
