December 2 - December 24
The presence of God changes everything. When He arrived in the form of a human child to redeem the world, He completely flipped the idea of our incomplete lives. The season of advent is one where we remember the incomplete feeling that was only resolved by the literal, physical presence of Christ on this earth.
