The word "advent" is defined as, "the coming or arrival, especially of
something important." In the church year, the season of Advent is a time
of looking forward to something greater. It is a season of preparation, a
time of waiting and watching for signs and portents.

Some of these are signs of a beginning. The three kings saw and followed a
star to Bethlehem. Mary and Joseph and the shepherds received visitations
from angels. Other signs and portents of the season foretell that
something is coming to an end: the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, and
other visions of John in the Book of Revelation.

But signs and portents aren't limited to Biblical accounts or religious
seasons. Astrologers read the stars and planets. Comets have been linked
to life-changing historical events. Shamans seek the visions of the
trance. Farmers scan the skies and consult almanacs for signs of rain or
drought. Fortune tellers read cards, palms and auras. We all have dreams
and visions. We see pictures in the clouds, and have favorite colors and
lucky numbers.
