Does the idea of Christmas being right around the corner fill you with stress rather than anticipation of the joy of the season? Instead of focusing on your To-Do list and shopping list, use these weeks before Christmas as a chance to focus on your prayer life, deepen your faith, and reflect on the meaning of the holiday.
Sign up now for our free Advent Prayer Program. Every day, from December 1-25, you will receive an uplifting email featuring a Scripture and reflection to help you prepare for, reflect on and celebrate Christ’s birth.
The word “Advent” is from the Latin word adventus, meaning “coming.” On Sunday, December 1st people around the world will light the first candle on their Advent wreaths to celebrate the coming of Christ, the Light of the World.
The Advent season is an invitation to peace and wonder—even in the midst of crowded shopping malls and busy holiday schedules. We hope you'll join us and transform these days before Christmas into days of devotion.
