From the waters of creation
God compels the earth to rise
Depths recall their own formation
Atoms spread through earth and skies
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia
Bless the earth by rain baptized
—from the hymn “From the Waters of Creation” by Rev. Anna Strickland | @sanctifiedart

“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!
