Advent Resources for Families

A recent USA TODAY article, Evangelicals adopting Advent, mentioned that I offer Advent resources here at Pursuing Truth so here they are. These are not my own personal resources, other than my blog post, but are helpful items I have found online.

Pursuing Truth Advent: Another Opportunity for Evangelicals to Re-Connect with Our Spiritual Heritage by Jeff Wright, Pursuing Truth.

Pursuing Truth The Voice at is one of the more helpful sites we have used. Easy to understand, thorough explanations of the different aspects of Advent and a liturgical calendar in general.
Article: The Season of Advent: Anticipation and Hope by Dennis Bratcher, CRI/Voice Institute.
See site for many other articles and resources.

Pursuing Truth Lent & Beyond, An Anglican Prayer Blog has a TON of great Advent resources. A must visit.
See, for instance, Advent Links: the Lent & Beyond Advent Resources Compilation.

This resource comes with a devotional guide and several Christmas tree ornaments illustrating one of the names of Jesus in Scripture. I know that you can find a copy on Ebay.
