Advent is almost here and so are the many wonderful resources: devotionals, calendars, wreaths, and artwork galore! Sometimes it can be overwhelming. And sometimes there’s a need, even with good and spirit-led things, to be intentional.
I’m curious: Is there a devotional you plan to use this Advent? A song that moves you? A habit that stills you? I'd love to hear from you!

"Christianity Today" has a good devotional with daily devotions written by many excellent writers and I've ordered some of those to offer to our congregation. (https://ctmagazine.myshopify.com/products/advent-2019-4-week-devotional-guide-10-pack)
Fuller Seminary sent a free program that I am planning to do with whoever will attend in a 4 week series after church. I plan to light an advent wreath in the room and then we will read and pray. Below is information from Fuller about the program. They used readings from the New Living Testament and I wanted to use the NIV so I re-did them myself. If anyone wants that, let me know and I will email it to you.
This Advent, consider using our free guide and scripture readings to help you and your community engage Advent afresh by simply listening to the Bible together. Gather with your family, an existing group, or start a new group and delight in the mysteries of anticipation and joy. These are simple tools to help you pause, and reflect.
