Advent Guide

“Here is an excellent resource for a 5 week guide that will be a benefit to helping us understand and practice Advent.  Great for groups and Families.

“The King is coming. Jesus Christ has come and will come again. This is the hope of the Church whomHe purchased with His blood. Jesus’ coming is the eager expectation and desire of His people. It is our joy because He is our treasure and greatest good. This is the theme of “Advent,” formed from a Latin word meaning “coming” or “arrival.” It’s the traditional celebration of the first advent ofJesus in humility and the anxious awaiting of His second advent in glory. The season is a time for remembering and rejoicing, watching and waiting.”

Hidden Christmas

In our secular society, everybody gets caught up in the Christmas spirit. But how many understand the real story behind the joyous carols and peaceful manger scenes? Taking you on an illuminating journey to the heart of the nativity, Keller unpacks the message of hope, redemption, and salvation hidden in the biblical account of Jesus’ birth.

The Dawning of Indestructible Joy

Advent is for adoring Jesus.

The Christmas season is one of the busiest times of the year. But it is also a season of reflection and preparation for that special day when we mark Immanuel’s coming — the arrival of our eternal God in our own frail humanity.

This is the greatest of history’s many wonders, something too stupendous to celebrate just on one day. Advent is a way of lengthening and intensifying the joy of Christmas.
