Celebrate the Savior's Birth with Advent Meditations
Be sure to consider LHM's seasonal devotions as part of your church's mix of Advent resources this year. This year's devotion, Love Came Down, is written to help readers thoughtfully reflect on the sublime wonder of Christmastime and all that God has done for us through His beloved Son. These devotions are now available to download and distribute for the coming Advent season.
Of Love Came Down, author Kari Vo writes, "When I write devotions, I do the best I can to make each one a kind of window through which readers can see the God who loves and cares about them. That means trying to write as clearly as possible and always asking the Holy Spirit for help. God shows Himself in His mercy, goodness, and holiness in every passage in the Bible -- even in the 'begats' of Jesus' ancestry. I hope that through these devotions, people will be brought closer to Jesus Christ, their Savior, who is the Love that came down from heaven to make them His own."
Lutheran Hour Ministries' 2017 Advent devotions, Love Came Down, is now available for download and printing (large-font text, bulletin inserts, bulletin shells, and PowerPoint slides) in English. Our Spanish-language version, Llegó el Amor, is available for printing as well.
You can find the Advent devotions in English by clicking here. For the devotions in Spanish, click here. Both are excellent resources for your congregations to use (you may want to suggest them to your pastor or church secretary), and they're ideal for sharing with visitors and new members. Both the English and Spanish go live on December 3.
