Awaiting our Jesus…Ideas for the Advent Season


As adventists we are keenly aware of the importance of the coming of Jesus.  As we prepare for Christmas, I wanted to share some tangible ways we can help our families remember why Christmas, or more specifically to coming of Jesus into our world was so important.

Here are a few online resources to help you spend some meaningful time as families during this Christmas season we call Advent. I encourage you to share your stories and experiences of what is meaningful by using the #CalimesaAdvent2014.  We can share meaningful ways to experience Love, Hope, Peace and Joy that our Jesus provides.
