Everybody loves Christmas… ok I’m sure some people don’t, but who’s against Peace on Earth & Good will toward men? We love the magic of this time of year and look forward to celebrating the birth of Christ on Christmas day.
It’s that excitement, that anticipation, that has led us to investigate the Advent season… After some in-depth research (aka googling) we learned that Advent means “coming”. Celebrating the coming of the Christ, the Messiah, the anointed one. The Bible says that “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” (Hebrews 13:8) And it is His Kingdom we celebrate this time of year. His birth as a baby celebrated on Christmas day, the gift of His Holy Spirit, and His future 2nd coming.
This celebration is bigger than one day… I suppose its bigger than a whole year perhaps. But we’ve decided to spend some intentional time this month celebrating the Advent season and the countdown to Christmas in what we call the Save the Day ADVENTure… a Countdown to Christmas. Updates are posted at this page.
Starting December 5th, in the year of our Lord 2013, the 20th day before Christmas, we’ll post a new idea of a possible way to celebrate and reflect on the Magic and power of this time of year. We hope and pray that you’ll love celebrating this time of year and spend some time connecting with the King that it’s all about. Merry Christmas!
