This week in school we are thinking about the start of Advent. Advent means ‘coming’ and is a time when we prepare for a very special event; the celebration of Jesus’ birth at Christmas. It is so important to remember that over 2000 years ago people were watching, waiting and looking forward to the birth of the Messiah, who we know to be Jesus. Now we are watching, waiting and looking forward to His return.
Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.’ Isaiah 7:14
