Here Now ~ Pender’s Own Advent Devotional!

devotional

From Pastor Kenny Newsome:

Welcome to the season of Advent!

Advent is a time of waiting, expectation and preparation for the coming of the Christ.  Traditionally, Advent started 6 weeks before Christmas and was a time to reflect and examine on one’s life and the things in it that would cause us not to celebrate and gain the fullness of Christmas joy.  Then the church shortened the time to 4 weeks and in doing so lost some of its meaning.

All of us know that Advent is the time of preparation.  We adorn our homes with greenery, put up the tree, hang wreathes and string the lights, all for the purpose of celebrating Christmas.  However, I wonder if we spend as much time getting our hearts ready to “receive our King” as we do on the material trappings?

This year, Pender members have given us a gift of their reflections of Christmas.  It is our hope and prayer that you and your family will use this booklet to prepare for a “holy Christmas” rooted in the birth of our Savior and Lord Jesus.  Just a few moments of prayer, scripture reading and reflection in the quiet of Advent will lead you and yours into a true celebration and not just having another holiday meal.

Let’s prepare our hearts and make Jesus the reason for the season!

The Pender Advent Devotional is available on the Pender website.

From YouVersion: Intentional Preparation for Easter

From my email:

People around the world will celebrate Jesus’ resurrection on Sunday, March 31. In the weeks leading up to Easter, many individuals put intentional practices in place to focus on the nature and meaning of Christ’s sacrifice. This year Lent begins on Wednesday, February 13.

Please consider joining the YouVersion community in preparing your heart with one of the following Reading Plans, each one designed specifically for this season:

Bringing the Bible to Life

As we study Jesus’ life and his sacrifice for us, it helps to understand the context of his time on earth. The Bible is a five-part series from Executive Producers Roma Downey and Mark Burnett that breathes life into tales of faith and courage from Genesis through Revelation. We’ve been chosen as the official Bible App for the series, and very soon you’ll be able to watch video content right in the Bible App. The Bible series begins 3-3-13; check your local TV listings for times.
