Advent quotes: we need time to prepare!

From the Advent resource “Let Us Keep the Feast: Advent & Christmas,” written by Rachel Telander and edited by Jessica Snell.   Rachel Telander writes this about why we set aside Advent as a season of preparation:

“You wouldn’t throw a party without preparing the food and drinks; you wouldn’t visit a friend without getting ready. We are about to remember the most awe-inspiring thing that happened in the whole of history: God becoming man in the glory and mystery of the incarnation. We need to set aside time to prepare ourselves for this – internally and externally.”
