"Besides this you know the time, that the hour has come for you to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed. The night is far gone; the day is at hand. So then let us cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light." Romans 13:11-12
The season of Advent, now come upon us, is a time in which the church prepares herself for the coming of the Lord. With expectant yearning and hope Advent looks towards the impending Parousia, or Second Coming of Jesus Christ at the end of time. In this service of lessons and carols, we give voice through prayer and praise to the hope set forth in Holy Scripture, that his kingdom shall come. ‘Behold, the bridegroom cometh;’ let us prepare ourselves to meet him.
