what is advent?

Some may ask - What is Advent?

Advent is when we watch and we wait in wonder.
Advent is the church's way of saying, "Not yet, but very soon."
Advent is the opposite of our culture's demand for instant gratification.
Advent is the season of waiting in expectation for God's promises to be fulfilled.
Advent is Jesus' way of saying, "Ready or not, here I come!"
Advent is the root of the word "adventure".
Advent is our wake-up call to remind us that the Messiah who came is also coming again, and not only that - He's already here!
Advent is the present reality of a past event that determines our future.
Advent is the time to remember, to repent, and to be ready...
