We are invited to encounter the people and places and events
of the Advent story, and even some ideas it has inspired, in order to come
closer to the One who gave us the story. In the midst of the activities and
challenges of the Christmas season, may these daily devotions give us moments
of quiet and joy. The reason stories have power is that they speak to the
heart. May we open our hearts, once again, to this magnificent story and allow
its drama to remind us of the mystery and beauty and power of Godís love.
The Brethren Press devotional series is published twice a year in anticipation of the Advent and Lenten seasons.
