Historic Worship Practices and related topics:Observing the Season of Advent: Future, Past and Present
By Jason McNabb, 2008, 14 pages
Summary: The season of Advent has a rich history and much potential for contemporary practice. This paper briefly summarizes the roots of the season and then contends that the primary appropriate focus of Advent is an eschatological one. Included are some practical suggestions for those in traditions where Advent is either a new celebration or one with less depth. The themes of anticipation, hope and joy are discussed in light of potential connection to a more typical contemporary evangelical church practice.
