How to Use this Devotional
This devotional follows the themes of the Advent candles we light in worship each week of Advent. Each Sunday, read the Scripture passage and devotional together as a family. Then, each day of the following week, read the Scripture passages and answer the questions together. Because Christmas Eve falls on a Sunday this year, some churches have decided to start Advent on Nov 26 and some on Dec 3. If your church isn't starting till Dec 3, just shift the dates to a week later and continue your reading past Christmas Day!
