As we come to the end of the year, it's easy to be overwhelmed with the past 11 months - especially in 2020. But what does it look like to move beyond our circumstances and truly embrace this Advent season?
The final week of advent brings the last and maybe most important candle to light: love. What does it mean to have real love, and how does the Bible define it? Dig into this final episode of The Arrival with Alli Patterson.
When we think "joy", we probably picture frolicking through a field of daisies followed by a plate of hot wings in a hot tub (ok, this may be very specific to us). This week, we dive into how the season of advent can bring joy even in the midst of everything going on in our lives (even without a hot tub).
In the traditional advent wreath, the second candle represents "peace." But how do we get peace in a wild world that typically tends to get even wilder during the holidays?
"Advent" isn't just a calendar with some *questionable* chocolates in it. It's a season that we can get a lot out of if we decide to opt in. This week, Alli Patterson focuses on hope, and how Jesus often brings it in ways we don't expect.
