Earlier in the month, I posted a list of resources for celebrating Advent on EpiscopalChildren.org. This has a brief list of resources that I either found intriguing or trusted resources I have used before. There are:
- Books, Pamphlets, and Calendars
- Lesson Plans and Skits
- Online Resources
I add to that a few resources of my own: How to Make and Advent Wreath and Advent Wreath Prayers and Reflections. For my family, gathering around the Advent Wreath and having conversations is a key part of our Advent celebration. Yes, lighting the candle is one of the cool parts for my young son, but we all enjoy the mood that it sets as it helps us set aside time and place to prepare for Christ’s coming.
