Take a breath and allow this Advent devotional to help you focus on Christ during this busy pre-Christmas season. Following common Advent themes, each week addresses a particular aspect of the unfolding story of Jesus in anticipation of His birth: the prophets who foretold Christ’s coming; Bethlehem, where Christ was born; the shepherds who first witnessed the Christ child; the angels who heralded the Incarnation—culminating with the birth of Christ, the Light of the world.
Each daily devotional starts with a painting and quotation by Lilias Trotter, followed by related Scripture with several thought/discussion questions and a meditation, including. a featured “Moment with Lilias.” A final a “heart-song” or hymn lyric captures the essence of each daily topic. The devotionals gradually build a comprehensive picture of the “Grand Miracle,” much like a jigsaw puzzle, taking shape with each added piece.
A glance inside . . .
With the wealth of available Advent resources, you might ask: why one more? We hope the above glimpses in both words and images will help you decide for yourself if this is something that might speak to you – or a friend – as you enter this season of preparation for the celebration of the coming of Christ.
