Another year, another advent. This year the first Sunday of Advent found us in the throes of moving house. We haven’t had much head space for serious reflection, but thankfully our advent habits have kicked in anyway. Surrounded by boxes and cleaning gear, trying to work out how life looks in a new place, we’ve amazingly still been able to carve out time to read through our bible reading plan. And finally, five days into December, we’ve even managed to put up our advent calendar.
Beginning the advent project a few years ago helped us to develop advent routines, our little household liturgies that help us see Jesus clearly. But as time passes things keep changing, we keep growing, and the church keeps producing incredibly helpful resources and tools for fixing our eyes on Jesus. So we’ve made a few changes to the Advent Project. From now on, every time we find something new to help you celebrate advent, we’ll add it into the resources section. Every now and then we’ll post here to let you know about new resources or remind you about some old favourites.
May your 2015 Advent be a rich season of remembering how God kept his promise to send Jesus into the world to save us, and of trusting God’s promise that Jesus will return to the world again to make all things new.
