Living life in the carpool lane..

Preparing the way..

Posted on: December 13, 2009

We’re in the second week of Advent and i can’t believe how fast this season is progressing.  Before we know it, we’re celebrating Christmas and the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

One thing I learned in the recent years was that the season of Advent was not just a Catholic thing..

As a Catholic, we have our own set of liturgical seasons in addition to the calendar seasons.. such as Lent.. my understanding is that Lent is mainly a Catholic thing.. please correct me if I’m wrong..

But Advent.. that was a surprise to me.. until I started to notice many Advent calendars being sold in various places such as Target and Disneyland.. and I knew someone of a Christian faith that had told me that they celebrated Advent..

It makes sense for Advent to be something recognized by all Christian faiths.  We are all preparing for the birth of Christ in December.  We all celebrate Christmas, why wouldn’t we all recognize the time period beforehand as a time of preparation.

So lets take a moment out of our busy schedules.. the Christmas shopping.. the hustle.. the bustle.. and chaos.. and everything in between.. to really recognize this time of year for what it truly is… the birth of Jesus Christ.. let us prepare for his coming..
