Advent – A time to read, pray, reflect, and act

Blog Published: November 29, 2010

One of my favorite Advent traditions is the Advent Calendar, which helps me keep tuned in to the spirit of the season, of awaiting and preparing for new life in Jesus the Christ. Though when younger I was more fond of the Advent calendars that had chocolate surprises each day, I am now into online interactive Advent calendars (plus they don’t have as many calories).
