|"Excuse my ignorance...
but what's this advent business?
You preachers have strange names
I couldn't blame him...
After all...we don't hand out
dictionaries of church language.
Let's try to be plain...
(I mean as plain as preachers ever
manage to get)
What do we mean by advent?
Actually...advent is simply the
"season of expectancy" which
Now...for my money
the "season of expectancy" is the
very best part.
We think we're too old for the spirit
to "get us"...
but somewhere along the way
we catch the glow.
Sure...Christmas is too commercial.
But for us it's more,
We know its secret meaning...
the hidden meaning...
the meaning most people miss.
So for the next four Sundays
we'll celebrate advent...
(special music, lighting candles, drama)
Don't you dare miss the wonderful
"season of anticipation"
"Behold, I bring you good news of
a great joy which will come to all
