It’s time to gear up for Advent and Christmas. One of the things we love to do at MSA is to provide you with helpful resources as you journey through the year. Advent and Christmas mark the beginning of the church calendar and, as you can see from the vast number of resources we have available, this is one of our favorite times of the year.
Since we’re all pretty busy this time of year I’ll forgo the chit chat and jump right to the resources.
First, let me tell you that our Advent Photo Challenge is back! Jean Andrianoff again challenges us with her daily reflections and topical challenges on our Advent theme “Entering the World with Jesus: Looking for Jesus in all the right places”:
- Week 1: …in our home
- Week 2: …in our neighborhood
- Week 3: …in our city
- Week 4: …in our world
The Photo Challenge page will be up soon and filled with reflections to spur your imagination and creativity.
- A Journey Toward Home: Soul Travel from Advent to Lent
- Waiting for the Light: an Advent Devotional
- We have nine different Advent devotional videos
And as always, Christine has updated several of her resource lists for the season:
- Advent Activities for Families and Kids, Updated for 2016
- Preparing for a Blue Christmas – New Creative Ideas
- Getting Ready for Advent/Christmas Worship Resources for 2015
- Advent Candle Light Liturgy
