You are invited to follow the posts that tell the events leading up to and following the birth of Christ here on this blog. The posts are spaced a few days apart to help develop the feel of advent as well as to give the message time to settle on our hearts a little at a time as we re-experience the wonder of the birth of Jesus the Christ. A few posts are already up, so you may want to click here to find the first post. All posts are short so it won’t take long to catch up. Continue through the posts by clicking on the next title at the top of the post on the right (or the previous post title at the top left). Some of the posts will publish closer together beginning on Dec 23, to help re-enforce the moment-by-moment events in the Bible. To catch each post when it first come out, you may find it helpful to subscribe to the blog through your email using the sign-up window at the right.
Most of the illustrations come from the children’s book The First Christmas by Janice D. Green and illustrated by Violet Vandor. These posts are written with older children and teens in mind and include additional information that was omitted from the children’s book. These extra pages may have other illustrations or may go unillustrated.
