The End of the Christian Year

Today is the last day of the year - well, the Christian liturgical year, at least. 

This past Sunday was Christ the King Sunday, a day to anticipate and celebrate Christ's second coming (and appropriately a day for giving thanks, being the Sunday before Thanksgiving). 

The Season of Advent begins tomorrow. It's the first day of the Christian worship calendar and marks the first of four Sundays in which we recognize and celebrate Christ's arrival as a babe in Bethlehem. 

It's a good thing for followers of Jesus to recognize the Christian cyle of seasons for it centers our lives around our Lord and Savior. Christianity is more (but it is certainly no less) than Christmas and Easter.

So as we enter a new season, let me wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving, a wonderful Advent, and a Merry Christmas. Enjoy these coming weeks of celebration and worship.

What do you look forward to most during this coming holiday season?
