Are you looking for a way to make the Christmas season more meaningful this year? Are you longing to grow closer to Jesus during this season but worried that the stress and busyness of the holidays will leave you feeling further away than ever?
NOTE: This was a project for Advent 2018 and is not currently formatted or updated for subsequent years. If you’d be interested in receiving new Advent resources, feel free to subscribe below to join my mailing list where I announce these kinds of projects.
Join me for How Long, O Lord?, a multimedia Advent experience designed with the busy holiday season in mind. Each day of December, you’ll receive an email with beautiful artwork curated from both local and internationally acclaimed artists, including He Qi, Brenda Buckingham-Ehrmann, and James Ramos, along with original music from singer songwriter Aaron J. Robinson, and a brief meditation that you can read, download, and even listen to. On Saturdays, I’ve included recipes from my friend Heather Winslow LeFebvre, who’s a baker and painter extraordinaire. On Sundays, we’ll light candles and pray together using the Contemporary Collects from the Book of Common Prayer.
You can download both the audio and print versions of the meditations, and you’ll also have access to an online archive of all the emails, which you can listen to and read at your convenience.
Here’s a sample of what you’ll receive each day during December:
As well, you’ll receive a collection of downloadable Advent cards, which you can print on cardstock, cut out, and use to help you count down the days. As an additional part of this experience, you can also purchase a set of the cards, already printed for you on slick card stock. Either way, you can hang the cards one at a time on a tree or mantle for each day of Advent. Or, you can hang them all at once and then remove one for each day as we countdown to Christmas. You could also keep them with your Bible or other devotional materials, and just reflect on the artwork each day.
This experience is available in several packages, priced for every budget and to help cover the costs of printing and licensing artwork and music.
All subscribers to my website will receive emails on the four Sundays of Advent and Christmas with the audio and print devotions.
If you’re already a subscriber, look for those emails beginning December 2. If you’re not a subscriber, you can do that now!
If you’d like to go a little deeper this Advent season, you can choose from one of the options below.
The first option includes the complete multimedia experience for the 25 days of December leading up to Christmas with a downloadable PDF version of the Advent cards. The second option also includes the complete daily experience with a downloadable PDF version of the Advent cards, plus a professionally printed copy of the cards delivered to your home by December 1 (if you place your order by November 25, 2018. This option is available for shipping only in the US at this time).
NOTE: If you purchase the How Long, O Lord Advent Experience after November 30, 2018, but before December 25, 2018, you will receive all the remaining emails of the series in your inbox, and you’ll have access to the entire collection on an archive page. The experience will not be available for purchase after December 24. If you are a new subscriber during the month of December, you’ll receive emails for the remaining Sundays of Advent. Please contact me with any questions.
