Advent Resources

Peace. Love. Joy. Hope.


The core purpose of Advent is to prepare for the coming of Christ. It manifests both inwardly, in our hearts, and outwardly, in our traditions and celebrations.


As you prepare your hearts for this season of anticipation, here are a few resources for your reflection and meditation.




  • PEACE: "Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests." - Luke 2:14

  • LOVE: "For God loved the world in this way: He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life." - John 3:16

  • JOY: "But the angel said to them, 'Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.'" - Luke 2:10-12

  • HOPE: "For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace." - Isaiah 9:6
