Biblia Files (part 5) - Waiting .... Light

Advent ... it's all about waiting.

And it's the first event celebrated in the traditional liturgical calendar.  And for 2014, Advent starts Sunday, 30 November and continues to the 4th Sunday on 21 December.

For more details on this first event of the Christian liturgical calender, check out this fine resource:  Celebrating Advent.  But this video clip gives a good summary and perspective:

In Summary:

Waiting ... Hope ... Anticipation ... before Christmas
Remembering the first coming of Christ to a dark and sinful world
*  Galatians 4:4
*  John 1:14
Anticipating He's coming back on the last day - the second Advent

Meanwhile, while we wait ....

But you, dear friends, 
by building yourselves up in your most holy faith
and praying in the Holy Spirit, 
keep yourselves in God’s love 
as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ 
to bring you to eternal life.

Blessings, my friends, 
      during the Holy Days ...
