Advent - An Invitation to Christmas
Advent - An Invitation to Christmas

The word "Advent" means "coming" in Latin. Advent is celebrated in anticipation of the arrival of a Saviour. But between the coming and the anticipation of Christ lies the often daunting task and trial of waiting. It is not just then about the going but a "staying home" to both prepare our hearts and home as well as to invite others into the magnificenf Story not without our radical hospitality. In an age where belief is contested, when religion is a private matter with little bearing on real life, the church can recover the heart and art of radical hospitality here in the waiting.
