Why We Need To Observe Celtic Advent (2020)
It’s my favorite time of year, again. Advent. This season and the lessons that we can learn and the hope that we can build has perhaps never been so important especially in the difficulties that we’ve undergone with COVID-19.
I have shared before about Celtic Advent (listen to last year’s podcast). This season of the church which begins November 15 is a critical time for preparing our hearts and lives for the coming of Jesus.
Today, on the From the Touchline podcast, I share the three different ways that Celtic Christians understood and celebrated the season of Advent and I talk about three things that are critical for getting us through the waiting seasons and moments of life.
Today, I mention the following books and resources:
- Celtic Daily Prayer Book 1 (devotional book)
- Celtic Daily Prayer, Book Two (devotional book)
- Watch For the Light: Readings for Advent and Christmas
- God With Us: Rediscovering the Meaning of Christmas
- Celtic Advent: 40 days of devotions to Christmas
Scripture references from today’s episode are from The Message:
From the Touchline is a short-feature (usually 10-15 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).
