It’s always a quick jump from Thanksgiving to Advent! We are here in Advent, a season of preparation and repentance! People prepare in a variety of ways and most congregations have a midweek service during this season. You will find some sort of Advent Wreath in our churches and our homes.
The time of repentance and preparation is an important time at church and at home! The Advent music is beautiful and meaningful. We love to sing hymns like:
- “O Lord, How Shall I Meet You?”
- “Lift Up Your Heads Ye Mighty Gates”
- “The Advent of our King”
- “Savior of the Nations, Come”
- “Once He Came in Blessing”
And the dinner table is a great worship place for the family as together they share the promises of God via the Advent Calendar.
Advent is not only a memorable time for children but also a formative time and a great time for family teaching!
