November 28, 2021

This Sunday is the 1st Sunday in Advent. It marks the beginning of the church year. The 1st Sunday in Advent is the Sunday closest to St Andrew’s Day, which is November 30th.
 
Advent is a time of expectant waiting and preparation for both the celebration of the Nativity of Christ at Christmas and the return of Christ at the Second Coming.
 
The name was adopted from Latin adventus “coming; arrival”, translating Greek parousia. In the New Testament, this is the term used for the Second Coming of Christ.
 
Thus, the season of Advent in the Christian calendar anticipates the “coming of Christ” from three different perspectives: the physical nativity in Bethlehem, the reception of Christ in the heart of the believer, and the eschatological Second Coming.
 
The readings this year look at the Second Coming of Christ on the 1st Sunday, John the Baptist of the 2nd and 3rd Sundays, and Mary’s visit to Elizabeth.
