In the thirty years I have been associated with the Churches of Christ, I have never heard much talk about things like Advent, Ash Wednesday, Lent, and so on. In fact, until I entered a Graduate School of Theology I did not know what a Lectionary was. Funny.

     In the last several years I have been exposed to a much larger Christian world than is usually present within the strict confines of our conservative group. To my surprise, much of what I am discovering is helpful to my faith.

     In a recent Google search of the word “Advent” I came across this little piece. It spoke profoundly to me. Check it out and see what you think.
