One thing I really love to do this time of year is get up early, turn on the Christmas lights, and read for the sweet few moments before the children activate their “Mama is awake and trying to accomplish things without us” radars. You, too?
If you have Prime, a Kindle, or a nearby library, I highly recommend that you pick up Tim Keller’s excellent little book Hidden Christmas to read in those moments over the long weekend. It’s short, so it’s easy to read in small pockets of time in between your obligations.
Like Keller’s other books, this one accessible, yet profound and compelling. The book looks at how Christmas fits into apologetics, particularly for our culture–a very thought-provoking challenge to reach out to others with the Gospel this time of year, but also to preach the Gospel to ourselves in a fresh way.
I found the book helpful and encouraging, and plan to have my older kids read it during Advent next year.
What have you been reading in your brief twinkle light moments this Advent?
