December 1st

"Advent" simply means coming as in Christ is coming, and for us now He has arrived. This is referring to His birth in history and in our lives. It meant the welcoming or the arrival of a special king and for us; it is our King of kings. Advent represents our hope and expectation, that we are waiting, and preparing for who Christ is and what He has done for us. He arrived into the world as a human being, being fully God and fully man. He came to earth just as one of us, as a tiny baby born in a manger. He came for us, He came for you and He comes into our lives and into our hearts.

Our activity for today is to prepare a beautiful Advent Calendar! Just click on the star to print the Advent Calendar!
