Advent: Hearing the Good News in the Story of Jesus' Birth
1 Nov. 2020
Something happened. Something happened that was so significant that every year we pause and sing songs about it, share gifts with each other and re-tell the story. Something happened that changed everything. Something good. When a child is born, it’s natural for parents to be in awe—wondering who their precious baby will grow up to be. But the birth of Jesus also created a transcendent wonder that has echoed down to us through the years—wonder because of who He already was. Whether you choose to read them during the Christmas season or throughout the year, these 31 readings explore why Jesus came and offer hope that is practical, transformative and, ultimately, good news for all people.
