Most of them had no idea what they were waiting for.
Join the anticipation this Advent season.
Advent, which begins four Sundays before Christmas and ends on Christmas Eve, is a season to look back at Jesus’ birth while also looking forward with expectation to His next coming. Historically it includes moments of reflection, slowing down, and focusing on a relationship with God, but it can also include celebration and anticipation. Until the Son of God Appears: Meditations and Practices for Advent attempts to walk readers through a season of contemplation and celebration.
The meditations include a two-page spread for each day of Advent, filled with verses, short thoughts, and thought-provoking full-color images related to daily Advent themes. The practices include journal questions, deeper Bible study, ideas for home décor and service projects, and spiritual disciplines—biblical habits meant to draw one into further intimacy with Christ. Whether you like to stay active or prefer seasons of silence and spiritual growth, this little book has enough content for many years of Advent celebration.
Each day includes a beautiful two-page spread of Bible verses, thoughts, and hymn lyrics based on a daily advent topic, like Light or the Lamb of God or History.
Each day also has one page of activities, further Bible reading, journaling prompts, and spiritual discipline ideas. Use as little or as much as you want to supplement your meditation times.
