For many of us, Christmas preparations are steeped in tradition. We put the tree in the same place we did last year. We follow baking recipes handed down from our grandmothers. We find those ornaments the kids made when they were in preschool. We go to the same parties, sing the same carols, and even have a favorite Christmas Eve service to attend. We like the routine of Christmas.

This year, however, things are different. Due to coronavirus restrictions, nothing feels routine.

The Church's season of Advent, the four Sundays before Christmas, is an invitation to something new. We're waiting for Christ's birth. We're waiting for his return. We're waiting for the world to be transformed from brokenness to wholeness.

This Advent, hear the invitation to a new and deeper relationship with God, to the world yet to come, to the world as it should be.

You're invited!

Advent begins November 29, 2020 and continues through December 24, 2020.
