Advent Devotionals and More


advent candles 750x380Would you love to prepare your heart for Christmas during Advent this year? I asked some friends to recommend Advent daily or weekly readings for you.

Judy also recommends Silence and Other Surprising Invitations of Advent, a “lovely, thoughtful book” by Enuma Okoro.

Ann Voskamp, One Thousand Gifts  author, has many creative ideas for you on her blog.  She also has a printable Advent calendar to enjoy as a family.

Christianity Today offers a daily devotional calendar which includes (in addition to delving into Scripture) serving others, prayers from church history, creative worship, fun food and crafts, and other hands-on ideas. You’ll need to subscribe to see these.

Want more than devotionals just for Advent? You could start some great devotionals on January 1st.  BibleGateway.com offers two-year’s-worth daily devotional readings from Charles Spurgeon’s sermons. They also offer devotionals from the writings of Dietrich Bonhoeffer and C. S. Lewis.
