A Time of Expectancy by Marc Nuttle

Last Sunday was the first Sunday of Advent. Observed by many Western Christian churches, the Advent season is a time of expectancy. Leading up to Christmas, Advent is a celebration of the birth of Jesus. Christian faith centers on the expectancy of the return of Christ. Upon the Savior’s return, Christian theology teaches that peace will reign on earth. Wars, pestilence, and poverty will be no more. Advent is a liturgical tradition wherein faith is manifested for the hope of the future.
