Advent According to Matthew

Advent According to Matthew:  

The season of Advent begins the Christian year by reminding us that we live within sacred time, time which is the arena for God’s story of creation and

redemption. The secular season places great strains and stresses on us, but the readings, prayers, and liturgy remind us of God’s greater purposes, one in which He is with us, and is acting through the sending of His Son. In this season of reorientation to God’s time and God’s story, we will attend to how the Gospel of Matthew shapes our expectations of the Lord’s coming, His first coming in humility and His second in triumph.
