Christmas is just around the corner and so here are a few advent resources to help you prepare your hearts and minds to mark the occasion of God becoming one of us and making his dwelling among us.
What is advent?
Advent is the time of the year the church remembers the expectation of Christ’s coming and of his coming again. In more liturgical church calendars, It starts with the fourth Sunday before Christmas but many people think of it as starting on the first of December.
Read through a gospel
if you are unsure what to read, then journeying through a gospel is a great option. Any one will reveal Christ and build expectation of his return.
