Keep Christ in your Christmas preparations

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.

featureSqC13Devotions150I 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!
