The celebration of Advent begins this Sunday. The purpose of this season of the church year is to look toward the coming of Christ to earth–a season focused on waiting. It is a time of preparing for the glory of Christmas day. Today, I want to share with you a few resources to help you in your celebration of Advent. Some will help you in your worship planning; others will help you in your church and family devotionals.
