It happens every year. I start the Advent season with the best intentions that this will be the year I don’t get swept away with the hustle and bustle of shopping and decorating and food prep and parties and travel. Instead I long for the season to be simple and reflective and focused on the birth of my savior, Jesus Christ.
I found just that opportunity to dwell on the one thing needful when I opened my e-mail box this morning. A gift arrived from my friends at WELS with a set of wonderful family devotions for us to use this week. There are three to use (a perfect number for me because I don’t have the feel guilty if I miss a day) and they include some reflective questions that are written for discussion with children of various ages. I’m looking forward to sharing these with my family!
I invite you to join us in a few moments of quiet reflection this Advent and Christmas season by sharing these devotions with your family as well. You can download Week 1 (PDF) and check back for links to future week’s devotions.
God’s blessings on your time in His Word!
