Advent 2015 Has Arrived

I am sharing our reading plan again this year after not sharing it here for several years.  It got lost in the shuffle so I am putting it front and center for you to find again if you want it.  We would love to hear how you celebrate Advent - church services, home celebrations, food, books, music.... whatever makes this time of waiting for Jesus return special for you and your family. Leave us a comment to share something special you love about this season.
