This December The Exchange is celebrating Advent! Advent is an expectation or anticipation of the coming of someone or something. During a time where it is so easy to get caught up in the busyness and chaos of the season, Advent helps us stay focused on the eternal meaning of the season and not the temporary demands. Advent begins December 1 and goes through December 25. As Christ followers, Advent helps us remember the arrival of Jesus as a baby and Messiah and also helps us stay expectant for the return of Jesus as the eternal King.
To help us celebrate the Advent season, we have Advent devotional guides available to use for personal use or as a family. The personal guide can be used by any student or adult to help reflect on scripture and journal thoughts. The family guide can be used by parents to help walk their children through scripture and questions about the Advent season. In addition to the family guide, there is an ornament guide that creates a hands on experience for kids to create something that goes along with each day's reading.
