A sincere and heartfelt thank-you to our sister in Christ Christine Sine for this Advent meditation. Inspired/thirsting to take more time away from the busy-ness of the holiday season and focus upon the Christ of Christmas? I’d encourage you to take a few minutes to visit these three sites:
- Christine Sine’s Godspace
- Following the Star (HT Arlene).
- Susan Boyle, Handel’s Messiah, Silent Monks & God’s Good Intentions for Our Redemption (By Lael Arrington, bible.org, December 4th, 2009)
If you have particular Advent meditations/reflections which you’d desire to bless others with (books, weblinks, one’s you’ve written), please share them with us as together we celebrate The Coming of the Lord.
