This Sunday is the first Sunday of Advent Season, starting the fourth Sunday before Christmas. Advent is a season of preparation for our celebration of the incarnation (that God became flesh and dwelt among us in Christ). The good people at Desiring God have provided a wonderful little resource that can be used individually or with families. They have a free e-book on their website called Good News of Great Joy. It has daily devotional readings from Sunday through Christmas Day. Reading this daily will be a great way to prepare your hearts for the deeper meaning and purpose of Christmas.
