Postures Of Advent – On Your Knees

First Sunday in Advent

Advent?  Christmas decorations are already in the stores.  Why not just start singing Christmas carols this weekend at church?  Because the season of Advent is a season of preparation.  Advent (Latin for “coming”) helps us prepare for and anticipate the festival of Christmas much like Lent helps us prepare for Easter.  The roots of Advent go back all the way to the 400’s in France and Italy.  The length of Advent was fixed at four weeks by about 600 AD. Today we focus on the first posture of Advent… on our knees.
