I love Advent. Advent was part of my church tradition from the time I was a child. The lighting of the candles each Sunday, especially the final candle lit at the Christmas Eve service became my favorite Christmas tradition. As a father, I wanted this tradition to soak into how our family would celebrate Christmas. As a pastor, I wanted to give parents and families a chance to redeem the celebration, to instill moments of pause, reflection, devotion, and anticipation into the tradition.
This all turned into The Advent Book.
I know many of you are looking for an Advent devotional for your church family. Last year, I was in the same boat along with a bunch of other kidmin. So we banded together to write a devotional that established a weekly rhythm for families and we distributed that devotional to over 20,000 people.
We’ve redesigned the devotional for a Kickstarter project where you can pre-order a printed copy for yourself for $25 or access a digital edition to share with your entire church family for $100. To get a sneak peek of what’s inside The Advent Book, take a look at this PDF download of Week 1.
