A Devotional Resource for Advent
Special invitations to help prepare for Christmas
I absolutely love this time of year. I enjoy the tree, decorations, family traditions, special gatherings, holiday baking, and the wonderful songs that move us along each day. It can be a warm and cozy time, "the most wonderful time of the year", as the song says. And yet, there is even more to Christmas: the reality of the Incarnation. Our great longings are met when God becomes human.
This advent, I invite you to join me for some time of reflection. When we read the story of Christmas in the Bible we see that something happened when people encountered Jesus. By taking some time to slow down and intentionally reflect on their stories, maybe something can happen to us. Maybe we can see Jesus in a new way this Christmas.
Inspired by the characters of Christmas, I will be sharing a special invitation for each week of Advent. You will be invited to try a spiritual practice aimed at helping you grow closer to God. I hope you can join me in spending some time to intentionally prepare for Christmas, so that when it arrives, we can truly celebrate.
