Celebrating Advent, 2007

As most of my close friends know, I consider Advent to be the most important season on the Christian's calendar. It's not just that Advent leads up to Christmas, it is much more than that. The Advent of our Lord Jesus Christ was God's declaration of love for his creation -- "For God So Loved The World, That He Gave His One and Only Son..." -- but it is this unbelievable concept of the "INCARNATION", the IMMANUEL, that is "God is With Us". God's love conquers a world full of sin...of hate, suspicion, material end alls and racial divide. He has given us all a picture of His Kingdom that we are invited into. It is not a Kingdom of the rich and powerful, of the movers and shakers, it's the "Upside-Down" character of God that comes flying in for all to see... "you gotta be kidding me. God says he is going to change the world and that sin will be no more, and he sends a baby!" Yes, a baby.

Every year I celebrate Ad…
