Our Weekly Thought - November 21 - 27, 2016

November 27 is the first Sunday in Advent, the beginning of the church year. The word Advent comes from the Latin ad venire, meaning to arrive to. Advent notes the time prior to the Nativity, Jesus' birth. It later expanded to include arriving at Jesus' return at the end of all time, and the Holy Spirit’s arriving in our lives through Jesus' resurrection. In Christ, it’s a new dawn; a new day.
