Scripture Advent Reading

Traditions help bring a feeling of togetherness into the home at Christmas time.  Beginning on December 13, read two scriptures a day as you burn the Advent candle.  Add to this what you wish–such as low lighting, special music and singing together.  This tradition adds to our knowledge and love of Christ during this wonderful season.
