Advent is an ancient tradition. For at least 1800 years, Christians have celebrated Christmas not just as a day, but as a season - 4 full weeks leading up to a fateful night when God himself entered in and became one of us.
It's a time for reflection and for yearning, where we lean into the darkness of this world (and our lives) and ask God to break in again, today, the way he did in before, back then.
And this will be our very first Advent together.
So we celebrate by shifting - from Wednesday nights to Sunday mornings. We've spent 9 months learning how to have spiritual conversations; now it's time to experience early Christian worship, together as friends, in an informal "house church" kind of setting.
Maybe you'd like to join us?
