Online Advent Calendar 2019 Begins December 1

November 6, 2019

The season of Advent begins the Church Year. It is a season of hope, of waiting, a time of anticipation of the birth of Jesus the Messiah, God-With-Us, and a time of preparation for the celebration of the Nativity of Christ. In our secular, consumerist culture, it can be a time for frantic shopping and spending, but for Christians, the observance of Advent is something much different, much quieter and simpler than that. We turn away from the greed and glitz, and look toward something much more sure and sustaining: the Love our Creator has for us. And how do we know of this love? What are we waiting for?

We know it by many means, if we but take the time to look for it. The very fact that we know we are waiting is one way. What, or Who, is inviting our curiosity? What is it we are looking for? That is what our writers will explore in this year’s Online Advent Calendar. The theme for this year’s Online Advent Calendar is “What Are We Waiting For?”

It begins on Sunday, December 1 and runs daily through December 23. You can find links to it on Facebook@CSJPrrayer.Net (no, that’s not a typo!) and Twitter@AdventCal or subscribe to a daily email at the website,
