Five Reasons to Love Advent

Pr. Johnold Strey (Gloria Dei, Belmont, CA) has come through again with another wonderful post I’d like to share with you, this time about the season of Advent (the season of the Christian calendar in which we are currently residing).

He, like many of you, struggles with the tension between the Church year (Advent) and the secular year (Christmas in July, Christmas sales beginning the day after Thanksgiving, Christmas music 24/7 for a month BEFORE Christmas, Christmas movies and specials for a month BEFORE Christmas, etc.).  And so he has written a lovely little post detailing why Advent should get a little more attention as the wonderful preparation for Christmas that it is.




  1. Thanks for the promotion! Christmas blessings to you and all the members at St. Mark!
