Celtic Advent

Nov 13, 2019

Do you ever feel like the holiday season is just crazy-making? Do you dread the rush that seems to come earlier and easier every year?

Rev Brad shares, in today’s From the Touchline episode, about Celtic Advent. This intentional season begins every November 15 and is designed to help prepare people for the day (Dec 25) and the season of Christmas which has become so commercialized and commodified that, for many it leaves a bad taste in the mouth. Learn more about this ancient custom of preparing one’s heart and life for the arrival (advent) of Jesus Christ.

Books and Resources mentioned in today’s podcast:

Resource #1: Watch for the Light: Readings for Advent and Christmas

Resource #2: God With Us: Rediscovering the Meaning of Christmas

Resource #3: Celtic Advent: 40 days of devotions to Christmas

From the Touchline is a short-feature (usually 10 min) podcast with Rev Brad Kenney, Founder and Executive Director of Soccer Chaplains United and Volunteer Chaplain to the Colorado Rapids of Major League Soccer. Rev Brad and occasional guests touch on various issues around the topics of faith, family, and football (soccer).
