Thanksgiving is a freeing holiday. We love having everyone together. No gifts. No expectations. Just family and food. So.Much.Food. Soon, it will officially be Christmas in our homes. Everything is decorated. Excitement is building. Gifts are getting wrapped. And holiday traditions, like Advent, are starting.
If you grew up in church, or have ever attended church during the Christmas season, then you are likely familiar with Advent. It is intended to be a time for us to reflect on God’s sacrifice. That moment He sent Jesus to earth as an infant to live a sinless life and die a cruel death.
Historically there are five parts to Advent – each one signifies an important aspect of the Christmas story. While we love the traditional concept of Advent, we want to shake things up and highlight the various people who make this story so interesting.
In the weeks leading up to Christmas Day we are still going to focus on the popular Advent virtues, but we will be doing it in a unique way. We invite you to follow along with us. To make this an intimate and enjoyable experience for you, we are offering a FREE download of our 2020 Advent with a Twist Devotional Journal.
You may enjoy using our Advent with a Twist phone wallpaper as well. And please follow along on the blog as we post each week and share our own Advent journey with you.
Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas, friends!
