By now, you know that I’ve written a free Advent devotional for subscribers to my regular content. The first day’s reading will arrive to inboxes on December 1, which isn’t, of course, the first day of Advent, but . . . (If you somehow missed the announcement about this free resource, you can subscribe here.)

There are many, many wonderful resources to use during Advent, and I’d love to suggest others to you. To curate the list below, I polled people on Facebook and Twitter, including the Facebook group associated with The Pelican Project. (If you don’t know what The Pelican Project is, you’ll want to learn, especially as one of our primary goals is to connect churches, lay leaders, and individuals with theologically rich content.)

Whatever you do, don’t let Advent pass you by as you keep yourself busy with shopping lists, holiday parties, and school concerts. As I write in the reading for December 1:

“If December has its way with us, it will leave us too distracted to look up, as the shepherds did, and notice the blinding glory of the Lord.”
