Advent Devotions from Fourth Presbyterian Church

Advent Devotions | Subscribing to Devotions | Last Month’s Devotions

As we light the first candle on the Advent wreath and open the first window on the Advent calendar, we turn our focus to watching and waiting, expectancy and hope.

As we await the coming of the Messiah, we remember that the season of Advent is not simply about readying ourselves for the observances of Christmas but about setting aside time to prepare our hearts and lives to receive the gift that comes to us in the stable. We open ourselves to see the light of the infant lying in the manger and embrace what it means to travel through life guided by the light that darkness cannot overcome.

On this Advent journey, we invite you to join with us in using these devotions for a daily time of reflection and prayer, and we wish you all the blessings of this season, as together we sing, "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel."
