Christmas is a special season of the year that is full of shopping and food and much more. Here at Harvest, we celebrate the coming of Christ, which is historically called advent. Advent simply means coming.
During this season, we look back upon the coming of Christ in the manger, in the incarnation, and we also look forward to his return, when he will set all things right. This is practiced in a variety of ways in different homes and traditions. Here are some resources that may help you and your family celebrate and look forward to the coming of the Savior of the word.
