Advent – What are you doing to prepare for the coming?

Many of us may view Advent as a traditional ritual of the church, whereby we pause to light four candles, the Christ candle and recite a ritual each Sunday.  But how many of us see it as a time of continual call back to our faith, a renewing of the spirit and a call of true repentance.  We live in a world today, whereby it seems there is no joy and all hope is gone; however we should look forward as a body of Christ to the celebration of Advent with great anticipation and expectancy of the coming of Christ!  The celebration reminds of the greater hope, joy and peace promised by our Lord and Saviour!
