What is Advent?
Stefani Pady

“What the heck is Advent?” is a direct quote from me to my friend Jen. She kept using the word “Advent” around the Christmas holidays and, as someone who didn’t grow up in the church, I just didn’t understand what “Advent” meant. I hope this confession shows you that Women, Worship and Work is a safe space for questions (there are no dumb questions here!). If you have ever been like me and thought “What is Advent?”, then this is for you!

 

In the video above, Jennifer and I chat about the season of Advent.

The word “Advent” simply means “arrival,” and in the Advent season, we turn our eyes to Scripture and Biblical truth as a way to prepare our hearts to celebrate Jesus’ arrival (and all that means for us!). We’ll talk about why we celebrate Advent and dig into the Biblical concepts of Hope, Peace, Love, and Joy. We pray this video blesses you this Christmas season!
