An Advent Calendar for 2021

An Advent Calendar for 2021
Published by Josh Hosler on Sat, Nov 13, 2021 7:44 AM

The Christian season of Advent begins on Sunday, November 28. Advent always begins four Sundays prior to Christmas Day.

There are many common practices around Advent in the home. Even our popular culture has picked up on Advent lately, selling you everything from Advent Lego sets to Advent whiskey calendars! But the forces of capitalism can't grasp that Advent is a distinctly un-commercial season. Advent is about actively waiting with bated breath, poised on our toes, ready to embrace the gift that is coming from God.

Here is a tool your household can use this Advent season: a day-by-day calendar of readings from the Bible that will guide you ever closer to Christmas. Download and print these to use at your dining table. Further instructions for use are given in the document itself. I'm also happy to answer any questions you may have about it.
