We are in the season of Advent. Advent lasts from the fourth Sunday preceding Christmas until Christmas Day. Advent marks the beginning of the calendar of the Christian church. It is a time of watchful waiting and anticipation of the coming of Christ’s human birth in Bethlehem.
Immediately preceding Advent, we were in the Season after Pentecost for approximately six months. During Easter Season, the church forms people in basic Christian doctrine and prepares them for their Spirit-given ministries in the world. During the Season after Pentecost, the church challenges and supports people as they live out these ministries.
