This Advent season, I’m using three resources for my Advent devotions:
First, I am using the devotional guide put together by our church. Randa and I each contributed a devotion.
Second, I am using the Following The Star online devotional. It was created and is produced by Passport, Inc., a student ministry organization focused on creating meaningful experiences and resources for students.
It has been an interesting experience to read devotions from several contributors who were students at Truett when I first started as a seminary student.
The final resource I am using this year is a book, Setting the Christmas Stage by John Indermark.
It is a unique resource in that it does not have daily readings, but four readings per week. It also uses the metaphor of a play to present the themes of Advent. As someone who is not gifted in the dramatic arts at all, it has been a stretching and encouraging resource. There are also great family, small group, and congregational ideas to use with the book as a part of the journey.
