Advent has long been a significant part of our church.  From the Hanging of the Green service to the lighting of the Christ Candle on Christmas Eve, the season is filled with significant memories and moments.  Over the years we have added another tradition here at Lexington Avenue Baptist Church—our Advent Devotional book.  Through these daily devotions we reflect upon the significance of hope, peace, joy, and love not only for this season but for everyday of our lives.

These devotions are written by people just like you and me—people on a journey following Christ.  In everyday moments we see Christ and experience him and he transforms our lives.  It is my prayer that these devotions will add meaning to your Advent season.

Let me thank all who took the time to write these reflections and those who helped to put this guide together.  May Advent 2013 be for you a blessed season!
