The month of December can feel like a race to Christmas: food, shopping, nativity plays, carol services, office parties, family gatherings and of course, presents.
Advent, marked only by a daily piece of chocolate resembling a reindeer or a stocking, can all but disappear in the business and the chaos. With so much to do, we can lose out on the depth and the richness of this special season. So this year, give yourself room to breathe.
Pause, ponder and pray
Take a moment each day to pause, ponder and pray.
Chrisrian Aid’s new Advent Journey will help you to travel further into the Christmas story with tales of struggle, hope and everyday miracles from Kenya, entwined with seasonal verses from the Bible. Carry it with you, read it with your morning coffee, treasure it as a family or with your small group.
Take time this Advent, and reflect on the season and the hope it brings.
The Advent Journey has proved so popular this year that they’ve run out of stock to order, but you can still download your copy here…
