What is Advent? The word “advent” derives from the Latin “adventus”, meaning “coming.” During its earliest observances, Advent was 40 days of repentance, fasting and prayer as new believers prepared for their baptisms. Oftentimes, these baptisms took place on the day of Epiphany–which is a day remembering the Magi’s visit to baby Jesus; it was a celebration of Jesus’ incarnation on Earth What is Advent about? (umc.org) We will have special readings during Sunday services beginning November 27.
