Advent means arrival and is intended to help us look backward as well as forward. We look backward and celebrate Jesus’ arrival as a baby in a manger, and look forward to his return in glory when he’ll make all things new.  

Advent is extra-biblical meaning it was established through Church tradition to help Christians focus on and grow in their faith. Advent themes are: hope, peace, love and joy, and are accompanied each year by the Lectionary's recommended readings. The Lectionary is a collection of readings from the Bible that the global Church uses in worship.  

You can celebrate Advent through the readings by following the link below. We’ve also added a handful of other links with ideas about how to celebrate Advent well.
