We started a new tradition this year. We will have our traditional daily Advent for James but I wanted to do something as a family that might have more spiritual significance. When we lit the first candle we read the Bible story in Luke 2:21-40 about Simeon and Anna awaiting the Messiah. We will lite a candle each week and the large one on Christmas day. Counting down to Christmas is reminding us that we are celebrating his birth and awaiting for his return.
For an advent Bible study look at ‘Rediscovering Christmas’ on You Version.
