Advent is just around the corner: December 2nd is the first Sunday of Advent. But what is Advent? And why would anyone celebrate it? Is this just some hipster nonsense, or is there something important here to pay attention to?
Our friend Shawn McCain joins us for this episode. Shawn is an Anglican priest in Austin, Texas, where he planted Resurrection South Austin four years ago. He tells us a bit about why the church calendar can be a powerful tool for spiritual formation, how Advent fits into that, and what, why, and how of Advent.
