Has your Advent been crushed by the Christmas rush? Advent is the season before Christmas in which many Christians reflect on the good news of Christ’s coming (advent means arrival, literally, coming in Latin). Spending time in Advent reflection helps us to remember God’s profound mercy, to marvel at God’s glory and grace, and to recognize that true rest comes from Jesus alone.
This year, before you get caught up in the Christmas flurry of buying and wrapping gifts, attending holiday programs and parties, and baking and taking delectable goodies, consider one of these fabulous resources for your Advent celebration. There are seven for the entire family and five for adults. My prayer is that this Advent season, you will recapture your wonder at the astonishing true story of Christ's birth.
