advent: the waiting

The story of Jesus begins with four weeks looking forward with anticipation toward the celebration of Jesus’ birth, the fulfillment of Israel’s hope, and the fulcrum for all of God’s promises for the world. In Advent, we look backward at the fact that Jesus has come for us once (the first advent) and look forward, eager for Jesus to come for us again (the second advent). 


The color for Advent is purple, symbolizing penitence and mourning.
