The word Advent means “coming.” It is a time to slow down, be quiet and meditate about the real meaning of Christmas. These four weeks before Christmas are a time to prepare our hearts and our lives as we wait for the coming of Jesus. We focus on the promise that God made to his people and how that promise was fulfilled in Jesus.

The word “Lent” comes from the Anglo- Saxon word “lencten” the time of the year when days grow longer. The season begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on the Saturday before Easter (Holy Saturday.) The period of Lent covers 40 days excluding Sundays since every Sunday is a “little Easter.” We are reminded of Jesus’ forty days spent in the wilderness and the temptation by Satan before Jesus began his ministry.
