I was blessed to grow up attending a very healthy Lutheran Church. I seriously really love that Church. It is the place where my faith began, and many people there made an incredible impact on my life.
Anyways, being part of a Lutheran Church and all, we definitely celebrated Lent and Advent. I didn’t really understand why we did, but simply that we did. I loved these times in the church because there were more candles to light in the front if you were an acolyte, and after Church was soup supper. Holla!
Anyways, the past few weeks I must confess I have been listening to Matt Chandler sermons about every other day (I know that is almost obsessive, but do yourself a favor and go listen to one here ). He is a Pastor of an evangelical Church in Texas, and most contemporary churches do not celebrate Advent, but their Church is going to this year. So, I decided I am going to as well, and learn about the true meaning of Advent (aka learning more about Jesus). And I am inviting you to celebrate Advent with me. And I am going to post blogs about this. So read them.
Check this out, here is what got me interested in doing this. I will be using their guide, and you might as well too. It will be good for the both of us I am sure.
And yes, I will still be incorporating soup into my Advent season. Duh.
