Advent, Season of Encounter : Bible Study at St. Thomas the Apostle

During the Advent season, we actively recall the arrival of Jesus as the Word made flesh, and we joyfully await his final return at the end of the age. But as we remember the past and anticipate the future, we are also attentive to our divine encounters in the present, the ways God “arrives” in our everyday lives. Amy Ekeh’s Advent, Season of Divine Encounter helps us explore three key Scripture passages to recall, recognize, and anticipate the ways God comes into our lives and our world.

Advent means arrival or coming. During this sacred season, we actively recall the arrival of Jesus as the Word made flesh, and we joyfully await his final return at the end of the age. But as we remember the past and anticipate the future, we are also attentive to our divine encounters in the present, the ways God “arrives” in our everyday lives. Amy Ekeh’s Advent, Season of Divine Encounter helps us look closely at three key Scripture passages to recall, recognize, and anticipate the ways God comes into our lives and our world.
