An Experiential Advent Calendar

Christmas is coming. And, as parents discipling our kids, advent is an amazing season to move through together. Kids spark with excitement at the simple mention of Christmas, and it is exciting: we are celebrating the moment when Jesus entered the world.

So, instead of simply popping open a calendar filled with chocolate Santas each day (or chocolate Olafs?) why not take some time to reflect on Jesus, and do something other-centred each day of advent (and the day after Christmas for good measure  – that one’s for you, my parent friends).

​Download the compassion advent calendar, and prepare yourselves for an advent season of Jesus-centred love and kindness to others.
