Come Let Us Adore Him: Preparing for Advent

Come Let Us Adore Him Blog Banner 2017.png

The word "Advent" in Latin, means "coming," and it is a time where we focus on and celebrate Christ's coming. We celebrate Advent by lighting a candle on each of the four Sundays leading up to Christmas, symbolizing Christ the light of the world, coming nearer to a darkened, cold world. We celebrate His coming, and the hope that he has brought into our hearts, by making a way to be restored in a right relationship with the God of all creation

An Advent devotional is a great way to begin preparing your heart and the hearts of those in your family for this season of reflection and worship. Below are some great devotionals that can help cultivate a heart of anticipation and thankfulness during the upcoming Advent season:
