If you’re anything like me, you are pretty jazzed this time of the year! It’s the Season of Advent on the Church Calendar.
Advent is the time when we anticipate the coming of our LORD. We look back, remembering His coming to us as a baby long ago; and we look forward to His coming again – any day!
My son Simon’s kindergarten and first grade teacher, Joanna Gellermann, like her mother before her, had an annual tradition of giving her students an Advent Bag. The class parents were awestruck!
Twenty-five tiny gifts in a small paper bag were actually object lessons for the Bible passages tucked inside! Kids and their families got to unwrap the season with a reason, one day at a time.
This Advent series is dedicated to my Sister in Christ, Joanna Gellermann.
Do you know what is sometimes called the “Big Blue Marble”?
THE WORLD! God made the world for us.
What does God continue doing for the world — and who is the world?
John 3:16-17 (NIV)
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.
Please come back tomorrow, for another installment of: ADVENT — Counting the Days to Christmas!
