It is difficult to believe that the season of Advent is upon us. This wonderful and sometimes painful time of preparation and anticipation is a powerful opportunity for cultivating a more devotional temper. Last year I wrote a simple Advent devotional for individuals or families. It consists of four posts (one for each Sunday in Advent) and can be done each day of the week. If you do not find it to your liking, I encourage you to find or develop a practice for yourself during this season.
