As usual, there are 2 options:
- The Birth of Jesus - a set of 25 readings mainly from Luke and Matthew's gospels, so you can spend time thinking about when Jesus was born and what it means for us today.
- Genesis to Jesus - a set of 25 readings covering the unfolding story of the bible and it's fulfilment in Christ.
Each day there is a bible reading, some questions to think about, a prayer, a special verse and some optional extras - something to draw, a song to listen to, a craft to do, etc.
This year our family will be doing The Birth of Jesus. We are looking forward to it already, it is definitely a tradition we have all come to cherish. If you would like more details as to how we do Advent, what goes in the little boxes, and how it has changed over time, see previous posts on Advent.
(update from 2017: these have now changed and are only 24 days of readings)
