“O, Come”: Awaiting the Arrival of Christ in the World
Advent is a season of preparation. It is a time of year when we hear the familiar scriptures that foretell the birth of the Messiah and through those readings build our excitement for welcoming Jesus to the world. Furthermore, we are reminded of a broken world that calls out for the Savior, “O, Come; O, Come Emmanuel.” This year, our Advent devotional series highlights the what Jesus coming into the world means for us. We will explore how Jesus comes to the world to bring justice, to feed the hungry, and to renew love and what it means for us as followers of Christ who continue to face the challenges of injustice, hate, and the ability to meet the basic needs of all.
Throughout the season, Marsh Chapel staff, students, and friends will provide daily reflections based on scripture passages, culminating on Christmas Day.
