Happy Monday! Yesterday was the beginning of the church season known as “Advent.” The word “Advent” comes from the Latin adventus which means “coming.” So during this time leading up to Christmas as we remember the incredible truth of the incarnation, God becoming a man, we also, as Christians living on the other side of Christ resurrection, look forward to our Lord’s second advent. Below are a few available readings you can use during this season of Advent. A couple from Desiring God (both by John Piper), Good News of Great Joy and The Dawning of Indestructible Joy. Focus on the Family has an Advent reading particularly for those with young children. While it doesn’t include all the coloring sheets and stand alone calendar the version here has the message and activity.
