As we enter the season of Advent, a time when (in the words of the Christmas carol) we are to ‘let every heart prepare Him room’, a time when we prepare for Christmas and the arrival of the baby Jesus at Bethlehem, we are going to be looking at different themes connected with the word ‘Advent’ itself. Each week we’ll look at these themes using the acrostic poem and will see what the Bible has to teach us about this season of preparation.







Advent is very definitely a time of anticipation and preparation, based on the sure knowledge that Christmas is coming. As we allow anticipation to build in us, the hope we have in Jesus Christ can be a fuel to motivate and move us and help us to live for God always.
