Christmas Advent ideas.

Today is the first day of Advent, that wonderful time in the church calendar for preparing for the celebration of Christ’s birth.

Galatians 4:4 says, “But when the time had fully come, God sent his Son…” NIV. God orchestrated events over hundreds of years so that when Christ entered the world, the good news could be carried everywhere.

In the same way that God prepared the world, let us intentionally prepare our hearts, and help those we work with, to celebrate.

This time of year can be so busy with ending a semester of ministry, preparing for Christmas/Winter conferences, and thinking about the spring and summer ministry opportunities. Students are preparing for finals. And we have our own checklist of Christmas preparations, parties, gift buying, decorating, etc.

Setting aside time for Advent readings and reflections helps to prepare our hearts for celebrating His coming, even in the midst of checking off our to do’s. A Google search for “Advent Devotion” reveal many options. Here are a few.

What a wonderful time of the year for sharing our faith. Here are some ideas for Christmas outreaches.

May we all find our hearts and minds stirred by the mystery of the Creator becoming a baby.
