The season of Advent, which includes the four Sundays prior to Christmas, is an overtly outward-facing time of the year. It means “coming” and reminds us that when God decided to know us, he didn’t merely talk about it from a distance. He reached out to us and came near.
By taking on human flesh and becoming a baby, Jesus made himself utterly vulnerable to us. Each Sunday of Advent we’ll explore different dimensions to this and the relevance of it in our lives.
