Christmas is a time of great joy and celebration. The lights, decorations, parties, gifts and festivities make this a time of year that people look forward to. But it is also one of the toughest times of the year for people who have experienced loss. Finding hope at Christmas can be a lonely journey for some.
In the fullness of Advent, we frequently find some of our old friends: busyness, stress and worry. What if this Advent we found a new friend: Hope. Join us on a journey as we re-discover that with a little intentionality Hope is Found: At the dinner table; In the carols we sing; In the stories we tell; Around the Christmas tree; In the candlelight; In the manger; and in the aftermath.
In the pages of this 26 day Advent devotional, you will explore ways we find hope in each of these places this Advent and Christmas Season. Each week you will be given:
-questions to wrestle with
-things to give up
-carols to sing
-prayers to pray
-an invitation to worship
