Advent Devotionals: Introduction

The season of Advent is always a meaning-filled time in the life of the church.  We reflect on the coming of God’s son into this world and into our lives.  We discover a richness in unlikely places like a quiet animal-filled stable.  We find light in the dark nights where shepherds watched over their flocks.  We are reminded of the gift that has been given to us, even as the magi bring their gifts to the Christ child.  And in the words of the angel we find hope – “Peace on earth!”
