Journey to Christmas with an Advent reading guide

Now that December is here, one cultural event commands our attention above all else: Christmas! Christmas is still several weeks away, but it’s not too early to start thinking about it. And I don’t mean thinking about how many Christmas gifts you have yet to purchase—I’m referring to the Christian tradition of Advent.

Advent is the season leading up to Christmas, and the church has traditionally used it as a time to ponder the mystery and meaning of Christ’s birth. To help you mark the Advent season, Scripture Union USA provides a free Bible reading guide for Advent (available in PDF or via email). Each day, it gives you a short Scripture passage and a few life-application questions to ponder.

Celebrating Advent is a great way to get into the true spirit of Christmas amidst all the usual holiday busy-ness. Challenge yourself to spend just a few minutes each day for the next month pondering the wonder of Christmas!
