Resources for Advent 2012


Advent resources 2012

Advent resources 2012

Each year I put together a new list of Advent resources. This list always builds on the previous lists that I have compiled. Here are the best of what I have discovered this year, but I would also like to know what resources you have discovered that should be added to this list

The Voice has one of the most comprehensive explanations of Advent and the symbols we use during the season. They are also a great source for the daily scriptures of the liturgical year.

The Text This Week always has an awesome array of resources.

Sojourner’s Top Ten Advent Resources for 2012 

Advent resources from Ignatian Spirituality

Christmas & Advent _ Ideas, resources and Donkey Rides

RECOMMENDED READING especially for those who know very little about Advent

  • For an evangelical perspective on practicing the liturgical year, few are better than the late Robert Webber. “Ancient-Future Time” is an easy read, with chapters on specific seasons of the year, making it a valuable reference and resource. Check it out on Amazon HERE.
  • Mark D. Robert’s ebook, “Discovering Advent”, is a short, helpful explanation of Advent. Check it out HERE.
  • Joan Chittister’s book “The Liturgical Year” is a beautiful explanation of how marking time can be a spiritual practice. Joan is a Benedictine sister and writes from that perspective, but has the modern person and not a monastic in mind. Check out her book HERE.

And resources I have listed in previous years:
