Celebrate Advent by Making an Advent Calendar

03 Dec

One way to remain spiritually centered during the festive Christmas season is to create an Advent Calendar that focuses on the true meaning of Christmas – the celebration of the arrival of the Savior. Search the Web for examples of Advent Calendars or design your own Calendar.

  • Each day of Advent illustrate a different verse from Scripture that centers on God’s promise to send a Savior and that highlights the circumstances of Christ’s birth. End the calendar with the nativity scene.
  • Spend a few minutes each day meditating on the Scripture and your illustrations.
  • For those not artistically inclined, purchase a spiral journal with an inspirational  Christmas illustration or verse on the cover and start creating your Advent Calendar.
  • Use stickers, shapes, clip art, or your own drawings to illustrate your understanding of Scripture.
  • Select Scripture readings from the Revised Daily Common Lectionary for 2017.



Use a Journal or Sketchbook to Create your Own Advent Calendar
