What is all about Advent that makes this time so special? Preparation for Christmas is one thing, but that’s not all. Advent gives us a vision of our lives as Christians. Advent shows us the possibilities of our life.
Life is a continuous journey through time. A journey in cycles, like waves of the ocean, tides high and low and high again, on and on. Church liturgy clearly shows such a journey in faith, with a full cycle
covering three years and then it is repeated. Each liturgical year takes a look at seasons and scripture from different point of view; this year we will see the point of St. Mark – very short and very exactly.
This Liturgical year we will have in our mind the thought: Here I Am To Worship. Doing that we want to remember that every place especially the church is good to be there and to praise the Lord.
