From the Introduction:
“Advent is a time of both reflection and anticipation. It looks ahead to Christmas Day, following the story of those who waited and hoped for the coming of the Saviour. Yet it looks even farther, to hopes still awaiting fulfillment at Christ’s second coming. It is a season of longing, hope, and promise.
The weeks before Christmas are too often filled with a frenzy of activity. But Advent invites us to pause, to reflect, and to prepare spiritually for the celebration of Jesus’ birth. Advent invites us to savour the sense of expectation and wonder that is unique to the season.
This devotional is meant to be a humble companion as you journey through the season. It follows the story of one man who learned to live within the promises of God. But it can be your story too, if you are willing to sit awhile by a Bethlehem fire.”
