Advent, 2011

This is a post from last year, slightly modified.

In less than an hour, I will pray Evening Prayer 1 for the First Sunday in Advent.
And so will begin another liturgical year, another cycle.
I love Advent. It's such a thoughtful, joyful time of preparation. I love that we
have different seasons, and ordinary time, too.

I'm including links to a couple of Advent calendars.
