Advent quotes: Christ’s incarnation is the beginning of redemption… (Glenn Packiam)

From Anglican priest / songwriter / blogger Glenn Packiam:

When you journey through Advent to Christmas, you begin to see Jesus more fully. You recognize that His incarnation was the beginning of the redemption of the world and that His return is the completion of it. Advent pulls those two moments together. It overlays  the joy of His arrival as a helpless babe with the hope of His appearing as conquering King. Both arrivals are anticipated in celebrating Advent.
