For several years, our church has provided an Advent devotional booklet to be used during this season. This year’s booklet is titled “Wait for the Lord,” and contains the writings of Henri Nouwen, one of the most popular and beloved spiritual writers. Nouwen offers insights that will add meaning and reflection to our spiritual journey through Advent. The booklets are available for you to pick up from a basket in the Great Room or on the table near the Chapel.
 
We are also providing a resource for our children to use during Advent that will enhance their season of preparation and waiting. Their booklet is titled, “Guess Who’s Coming for Christmas,” and it comes with a sheet of Advent paper chain links to use with the children. These are available for pick up in the children’s area of our church.
 
It is our hope that this resource will become a part of your faith journey through this season of Advent. We hope that the words contained within it will find their way into your heart and will be a source that will nurture your spirit as you prepare to celebrate the coming of our Messiah – Jesus Christ.
