The 2017 Advent Season  is Upon Us!

Begins Sunday, December 3, 2017

Advent begins Sunday, December 3rd and this Advent season is shorter than usual with the 4th Sunday in Advent being on Christmas Eve.

Perhaps you would like to follow along on a daily online Advent devotional during this holy season and this listing might be helpful to you.

All of these are free, so take look at them all and see which fits you best.

The first two devotionals listed  are mine that I have written. The first one, Celts to the Creche is based upon some of the Celtic and Anglo-Saxon saints that I passionately study and write about. The second one is a Pilgrimage to Bethlehem with a variety of Biblical and “not so” biblical characters.

There are even several free Advent devotional apps available for the iPhone and one for  Android.

It is my hope you will find one or two of these Advent devotionals that will be meaningful to you this season.

May the light and love of the One born in Bethlehem fill your life this season and always.
