 The Meaning of Advent

I believe that the meaning and importance of advent in our faith is that it prepares us for Christmas by renewing our belief in the true meaning of Christmas.

With the commercial side of Christmas and the excitement and joy of gifting often overwhelming us at Christmas it is easy to forget why we celebrate this special time of year.  The recognition of Advent helps us to consider the meaning of the coming of the Messiah and prepares us for the celebration of his coming.
