Weary world, out of hope
Disbelief is how we cope
We’ve left faith to rot and rust
Dreams are covered in layers of dust
Weary world rejoice
Come and raise your voice

—from the hymn “Weary World Rejoice” by Rev. Anna Strickland

“Advent” comes from the Latin word adventus which means “coming”. The season of Advent is the first season of the Christian church year and encompasses the four weeks leading up to Christmas. It is a season of waiting and preparing for the coming of Christ on Christmas, which lasts for 12 days until Epiphany (January 6).

This Advent, we will be going through a series titled How does a weary world rejoice? created by A Sanctified Art. We hope these daily meditations will accompany and inspire you on your Advent journey!
