A few years ago, when I was working full-time as a Youth & Family Minister, I began looking for Advent Resources to share with the families of my congregation. I found a lot of resources that were okay, but not exactly what I was looking for. I decided to give devotion writing a try and shared what I created with others. So it turns out, apparently I’m decent at it and people enjoy the devotions, because I’ve been asked to keep creating them.
The devotions are based on the weekly readings from the Revised Common Lectionary. There is a devotion for each Sunday and a devotion for each week which can be used once or repeated each day. Repetition often offers the opportunity for deeper reflection and understanding. We also live very busy lives and for some once a week is the best that can be done.
Feel free to use the devotion this Advent Season with your family and let me know how it goes!!!!
