About This Week's Liturgy
Advent means “Coming.” Advent is a season of excitement as we remember the First Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ in his birth. Advent is also a season of waiting; a time for us to anticipate, yearn, and long for the Second Coming of our Lord.
Our decorations usher us into this season of waiting and excitement for our Savior. The color purple symbolizes repentance and preparation. In contrast to the deadness of winter, the greenery reminds us that Jesus is coming to bring everlasting life.
