|Update Your Counts Now for Next Year’s ‘Advent Devotional Books’|
|December 16, 2005|
|By now, your church members may be using Lutheran Hour Ministries’ (LHM) Advent Devotional Books for 2005, which we supply to Lutheran churches free of charge. It is our prayer that this season’s book, A Message of Hope: Advent Reflections of 2005: Proclaiming the Promise, will help congregation members draw closer to the Lord and focus on the real reason for the Christmas season, Jesus Christ the Savior. This year’s Advent Devotions feature devotional messages from all of The Lutheran Hour® Speakers through the years.|
If you need to slightly modify your church’s counts for next spring’s Lenten Devotionals, you can still do so by calling the LHM Response Center at 1-800-876-9880. These books have already been printed, but minor count changes can still be made. Call immediately since quantities are limited.
For those of you who did not receive this year’s Advent Devotional Books, do not hesitate to call the LHM Response Center today with your counts for next year! Calling now will ensure that we print enough Advent and Lenten Devotional Books to fulfill requests for 2006-2007.
You may call and update your counts at any time during the year, and we will make sure that your count is changed for future materials (we may not be able to adjust orders for already printed materials).
This year, LHM was able to use the Advent Devotional Books to reach out to survivors of this fall’s hurricanes that devastated the U.S. Gulf Coast. A Lutheran church in Biloxi, Mississippi, packed 5,000 devotional books into care packages for hurricane survivors.
LHM Executive Director Greg Lewis says, “Including the Advent Devotional Books in these care packages is a wonderful way to share Christ’s message of hope. I am glad that Lutheran Hour Ministries could be a part of this church’s outreach efforts.”
