Avent is a time to wait in the darkness for God’s shiny new day. It’s the night sky right before the dawn. Advent is a time to go down deep within ourselves. Advent is the time to get ready for the birth of Jesus. Jesus is coming again to turn despair into peace, violence into love, sorrow into joy and hatred into love. Join us at First United Methodist Church of Austin as we wait, watch and walk together through God’s starry night and into the dawn.
