If you haven’t purchased your Advent candles yet, you may want to do so before all the craziness of post Thanksgiving shopping starts. On page 2 of this month’s Advent Activities Packet you’ll find a lovely, simple (and short) prayer service to go with this devotion as you light a candle each Sunday. Guaranteed to hold the attention of even the squirmiest pre-schoolers.
Sunday will also be the time to start extra prayer and little sacrifices to prepare your hearts for the coming of the Messiah this Christmas. Use the Road to Bethlehem activity to mark the time and your spiritual progress this season! (No preparation necessary. Just hang the poster and have some colored pencils available to color the stones.)
