Have a Blog? Join our Advent Link-up Party!




Advent is the beginning of the church year. It is a time of preparation and penitence. A time of purple vestments. A time of wreaths, candles, and hymns like, “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel.” It can also be a time of trying to keep Christmas at bay until its own proper and joyous season.  

For people like me who did not grow up celebrating Advent as a distinct season in the liturgical year, it is exciting to hear about how others celebrate it. How do you remember Advent as an individual? How do you incorporate it into family life? How do you teach your children about it? How do you explain it to your extended family or to people on the street?

We are running this party before Advent begins so that, should you be inspired by anyone else’s ideas, there will be time to implement them. You can add your link anytime today through Christmas Eve.

  1. Cool idea for the blog. I love link-ups because I like finding new blogs or old post from blogs I now read.

  2. Great idea! Quick question.... Is there a specification for only Lutheran blogger entries? I'm Reformed and would love to enter my Advent post.... But I understand either way. :)

  5. Yep. I messed up. Pretend the link to my blog says, "Auntsy in Advent." Not "Aunsty." Sorry.

We love knowing what thoughts and ideas this article sparked. Please leave comments, but do remember Luther's explanation of the eighth commandment, and "put the best construction" on the intentions of the author and other readers.
