Advent means “coming” or “arrival.” The focus of the entire season is the
celebration of the birth of Jesus the Christ in His First Advent and the anticipation
of the return of Christ the King in His Second Advent. Thus, Advent is far more than simply
marking a 2,000 year old event in history. It is celebrating a truth about God, the revelation of
God in Christ whereby all of creation might be reconciled to God. That is a process in which
we now participate, and the consummation of which we anticipate. Scripture reading for
Advent will reflect this emphasis on the Second Advent, including themes of accountability for
faithfulness at His coming, judgment on sin and the hope of eternal life.
