An Aggregation of Advent Resources

Advent-Cropped‘Tis the season…to start looking for seasonal resources.

Many of us search for ways to walk more deeply in the Story of God, especially when our exterior worlds are illuminated by Christmas catalogs, sparkling lights, and Elves on Shelves beginning in October. If your family, like mine, tries to embrace Advent’s waiting and anticipation as we look toward Christ’s coming, you might find this list helpful.
