For hundreds of years the church has anticipated the coming of Jesus during the season of Advent. The fourth week of waiting for his arrival invites us to experience His LOVE. Jesus arrived after a period of 400 years of silence, confusion, and longing for the Jewish people. He demonstrated His love by taking on frail humanity and revealing himself to unlikely people. During Advent we celebrate the love that Jesus offers us by coming close to us in the midst of our suffering and sin. We also anticipate the day when His love will bring to an end all sin and suffering.
