“Advent” is the Latin word for “coming”. It is celebrated all over the world as the anticipation and coming of Jesus’ birth! These family devotionals are meant to spark conversations about advent based on Scripture and a traditional Christmas carol. Over the next four weeks, we challenge you and your family to dive deep into the four aspects of advent together–hope, peace, joy, and love–as we celebrate the coming of our Savior.

Hope: November 28–December 4

“Hope is an abstract word–it’s not something you can see, but you can feel it. The dictionary says that the definition of hope is– ‘a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen” or “a feeling of trust.’ This feeling of hope we have in Christ is not a wishful thinking kind of hope, it is a great expectancy for God to move.”
