Advent: A season of reflection. The word Advent comes from the Latin word adventus meaning "arrival.” The weeks long preparation of prayer and reflection for the coming of Jesus. While we prepare for the fourth week of Advent, and dive into Christmas festivities, I ask, how will you find time to rest in the Lord this week? I, personally, like to spend a few minutes a day meditating, reading, or listening to a devotion.
Check out Lutheran Hour Ministries for daily Advent Devotions that are perfect for personal reflection or to share with family, friends, and congregations. You can read these devotions online, through the free Lutheran Hour Ministries app, or listen with Spotify, iHeart Radio, Alexa, or Google Home. While you’re visiting their site, be sure to take a gander at all the other awesome resources they offer!
