If you’d like to do a weekly Advent reading with your family, here is one example and you can find several other weekly readings here.
Advent is a time to prepare ourselves for the celebration of Christ coming into the world, and a time to prepare ourselves for Christ’s second coming.
Read and Meditate
Isaiah 35:1-10; Luke 1:47-55; James 5:7-10; Matthew 11:2-11.
Discuss and Do
Live simply that others may simply live. –Ghandi

For that person who has everything—you can never think of anything to buy for him or her . . . Have you considered giving that person the gift of your time?
What about a donation to a charity in the name of the person to whom you are giving a present? Consider giving to www.kibogroup.org
Make a gift for Jesus
Make something with your hands, write a poem of praise, create something.
Wrap up this creation and put it under the Christmas tree or make a stocking for Jesus.
O Come All Ye Faithful
