As Christians we are called to use Advent as a time of preparation and solemn expectation, a time to focus our understanding and efforts on the promises God makes to us during the season. Or in other words to rediscover and reclaim the reason for the season.

As Christians we believe that the precious child that came on that night in Bethlehem was the very key to a fulfillment of a promise made to us by God and spoken of through the prophets. A promise that would bring to all who believed in him – a deeper understanding of who God is and will always be for us and it is this promise that is at the heart of what we are preparing for.
