I appreciate this video's emphasis on Advent as a season of "expecting, waiting, hoping and praying." But in differentiating Advent from Lent, the video raises concerns when it says that Advent is "about hope not repentance." In a previous posting I've addressed the question "Is Advent a penitential season?", with more thoughts on the penitential character of Advent here.
As noted in my previous postings on this topic, downplaying or denying the penitential character of Advent flies in the face of the liturgy. Today, the second Sunday in Advent (RCL Year B), is a good example. Here's the collect appointed for this day:
Merciful God, who sent your messengers the prophets to preach repentance and prepare the way for our salvation: Give us grace to heed their warnings and forsake our sins, that we may greet with joy the coming of Jesus Christ our Redeemer; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
I note also in today's epistle reading from 2 Peter the admonition to "strive to be found by him at peace, without spot or blemish," as well as John the Baptist's proclamation of "a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins" in today's Gospel reading from Mark.
Advent: it's about hope and repentance.
