Advent Begins this Sunday
Dear Trinity, What are you longing for this Christmas? At our church, we start longing for Christmas during a season of preparation called Advent. Advent, however, doesn’t begin with light and Christmas joy. It begins in the dark. Literally. It is the darkest time of the year. It is a season of forced emptiness (which is another phrase for God’s spaciousness). It is a season of paring down (when our consumer culture is about stocking up). Advent comes to us as a gift of darkness, emptiness, and says — “Will you enter this period of waiting with me? Will you pause to remember and recognize your own emptiness and darkness — and practice longing for the light?” What might this look like in your own life? What new thing might God want to do in you? We invite you to come and see… Warmly, Carson+ PS. If you weren’t able to see the booklet we handed out last Sunday with all the Advent happenings coming up, please download it below!
