Advent A to Z | Prayerful and Playful Preparations for Families (Indermark and Harding)
Beginning December 1 and running through December 26, Advent A to Z will explore an Advent-related word that begins with a successive letter in the alphabet. This is followed by suggestions for simple, easy-to-prepare, and complete activities (discussion starters, games, crafts, meditations, journaling, outreach project, devotions). Through use of scripture and tradition, John Indermark and Sharon Harding fill the season of Advent with an abundance of characters, themes, and symbols. Each casts a slightly different perspective on the meaning of Jesus' birth and God's promised realm, the two chief components for which this season bids our preparation.
