Advent may cause you to think about holiday sales, calendars filled with chocolates, or maybe candled wreaths on cold Sunday mornings. But Advent is really a movement—a movement that Jesus started and continues to send forward. In a way, it moves without us. In another way, it only moves with us.

Advent means “coming,” and it is. Methodically, surprisingly, independently, collaboratively, Jesus is coming with a story of purpose for our work. In your work this season, whatever that may be, you can help others see—perhaps for the very first time—that Christ has come and will come again to make all things new. His Advent is upon us.
