Welcome to this year’s series of Advent reflections, which are designed for children between 7 and 10 years of age, though they can be used with younger or older children or even by adults.
Advent is a season in the church’s year that marks the four weeks before Christmas where, as Christians, we look forward to the coming of Jesus, both as a baby at the nativity and to his second coming.
There are 26 numbered ornaments and a nativity scene below. Each day of Advent the corresponding ornament will unlock, with the nativity scene opening on Christmas Day. Tapping each ornament will view that day’s reflection. The calendar will show all the reflections for the entire Advent Season, but you can not open the reflections until the corresponding day has arrived. (If viewing on a tablet, please use in landscape orientation.)
