It’s that time of year again. That time of year when we put up the lights and string garland on the trees. The Christmas Carols play in the background and the smell of cookies lingers in the air. Christmas brings with it an intense stream of activity and movement. Sometimes things get so busy and overwhelming we forget what it is that the holidays are all about. For that reason I took the Advent Project in a different direction this year.
This year it’s not just a list of activities, it now incorporates a study/reflection component. It is my hope that together we will journey towards the manger and make sense of what the holidays are truly meant to be. Some days are more reflective than others and some incorporate some action. I hope we can use this as a chance to embrace the holidays and not allow them to overwhelm us. I want this to be one way we can embrace the holidays, our faith and really sink in to what it means to have God meet us here on earth.
I’d love for you to join me as I journey towards the manger. I’ll be blogging a bit about my progress and the study in general throughout the Advent season and I’d like to hear how you’re doing with it and what you’ve discovered while doing it. I’ve uploaded it here in PDF form for you to download to make it easier to read and handle. Let’s do this together. Let’s set aside some time in our day to really sink into the Christmas message.
What does it mean to have God meet us here on earth? Join me and we’ll find out together…
