Advent Devotionals: Introduction

Tommy Valentine


The Season of Advent is a significant season in our church’s life. Beginning with the lighting of the first candle on the Advent wreath, continuing through the Hanging of the Green service, and concluding with the lighting of the Christ Candle on Christmas Eve, the season is filled with significant memories and moments.  This Advent Devotional book has become a significant part of this season as well. 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 2014 be for you a blessed season!
