Next Sunday, November 28th, marks the beginning of the Advent Season.
This is a powerful time of year, when we meditate tangibly on the Light of the World. Especially on His Return… we hold our breath and expect His arrival any. minute. now.
During Advent, our little family celebrates each weekâ€™s light with an Evening Light Event. In addition to lighting the candles of the Advent wreath, we savor the lights in and around our home. We began this tradition four years ago and look forward to continuing it throughout the years. As we ready the lamps of our hearts, looking always for His long-awaited return.
Our Light is Readyâ€¦
The first Sunday of Advent, we will light the Christmas tree and talk about Jesus Coming to Execute Justice (Isaiah 25: 6 – 26:6).
The second Sunday, we will light a fire outside, look up at the stars, and enjoy cups of hot cocoa.We’ll talk about Jesus Coming to Forgive Sins (Ephesians 1:3-14).
On the third Sunday, we will hang lights in the girls’ room, and wrap presents or sing Christmas carols. We’ll celebrate Jesus Coming to Renew Love (1 John 4:13-16).
On the fourth Sunday, we will light candles at the dinner table and enjoy a special meal together, while we celebrate Jesus Coming to Feed the Hungry (John 6:50 – 51).
We’d be delighted for you to join us. Please check back here each Saturday to read about our plans and thoughts for the following day’s celebration.
