Usually, we have lots of ways we do this with countdown chains from school,
chocolate advents from Grandma, and our elf, etc.
I like to prepare an advent for our family about Jesus Christ
- his life, his stories, his miracles, his service, etc.
It helps us stay focused on what matters most during this Season.
Our church has prepared an advent reflecting this very thing.
This year all over the world, no matter your age,
your faith or religious beliefs,
you can do small things to help serve others.
It's beautiful and simple.
You can do one thing each day, or just do a few of things
throughout the month. No need to go overboard, or to feel guilt, or stress.
It starts tomorrow on Dec. 1st.
It will help you enjoy Christmas better, in a more meaningful way.
Go to this link to print out a pdf of the calendar, so you can follow along.
The idea is to #lighttheworld with small acts of service.
This initiative will help each of us remember Jesus Christ,
and more importantly come to know him.
This website will give you more information.
