Faith Column: The gifts of Christmas

Advent is a spiritual journey that Christians take through the truths of scripture pointing to the birth of the Messiah. It is a reaffirmation that he has come, is present in the world today and will come again in glory. It mirrors the journey of faith that Christians make after that moment of realization and acceptance of who Jesus is. We take that first step of faith in commitment, continuing hopefully to walk the road of faith with increasing understanding, looking forward to our destination, which is to be in his presence forever!
