Tag Archives: Advent
Let’s lend a minute to the O Antiphons! The time has come as we approach Christmas Eve(ning). 🙂
Hey. Be thankful. 🙂 Meanwhile, life on this blog will kind of go on as normal, no sales, little Thanksgiving hoopla, etc, though I’ll likely take Thursday off. Still, we’d better acknowledge the coming Advent with some 2018 Advent Resources!
I’ve blogged about Lutheran pastor Gaven Mize a number of times, highlighting books like God Loves me Such, My Little ABC Liturgy Book, My Little ABC Coloring Liturgy Book, and Beauty and Catechesis. Now he’s offering another: an advent devotional titled Awake, You Who Sleep: The Advent of the Christ.
Are there any Lutheran Advent reviewers among my readers? There is so much on the market–free or otherwise–designed to refocus our attention at this time of year. How can we know what’s good?
Since Advent began yesterday, I thought I’d highlight a few Advent resources for you. (Maybe next year I can put together such a list sooner—sorry.) It’s a bit eclectic, so I hope you find something suitable and helpful in this reverent, penitential season.
Fall is in the air. Our congregation just had its “Thanks for Giving” turkey supper. It’s time to take a breath of contentment before the holiday season begins. And, after that brief moment, I am pleased to announce that my friend, Rev. Chris Matthis (LCMS), has released another book: Looking for God in All the Wrong Places: Sermons for Advent and Christmas. (To be honest, it includes Epiphany, too. :))
