Advent 2022

The Mystery of Christmas from Godly Play curriculum

Christ who has come is still coming. This is full of mystery. You know, a mystery is sometimes very hard to enter. That is why this time of Advent is so important. It helps us get ready to enter the Mystery of Christmas.

Sometimes, people walk right through a mystery and do not even know it is there. This time of year you will see people hurrying, shopping, buying things, and doing this and that, but they miss the Mystery of Christmas. They don’t know how to get ready to enter a mystery, or maybe they forgot.

The Church learned a long time ago that people need a way to get ready to enter or even come close to a mystery like Christmas. The Church set aside four weeks to get ready. Christmas is such a great Mystery that it takes that long to get ready.

During this time, we are all on the way to Bethlehem. We are all making the journey. We are all getting ready to enter the Mystery of Christmas, so let’s go with the Prophets, the Holy Family, the Shepherds, the Angels to make the journey.

Join us on our journey through Advent as we discover the Mystery of Christmas.
