Advent is for adoring Jesus.
The Christmas season is one of the busiest times of the year. But it is also a season of reflection and preparation for that special day when we mark Immanuel’s coming―the arrival of our eternal God in our own frail humanity.
This is the greatest of history’s many wonders, something too stupendous to celebrate just on one day. Advent is a way of lengthening and intensifying the joy of Christmas.
These 25 brief devotional readings from John Piper begin on December 1 and carry us to Christmas Day. Our hope is that God would use these meditations to deepen and sweeten your adoration of Jesus and help you keep him at the center of your Christmas season.
The hosts were Adelaide Mitchell and Ann-Marie Ferry. The “club” was informal; nothing was required other than an open heart. There were also opportunities to be involved via:
- Weekly email roundup
- Daily Instagram Live (with one or both hosts)
- Sharing personal insight on IG with #dawningofjoy @thestoneandtheoak @ann_marieferry
