Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.
"As Christmas' cultural and commercial value increases ever more, the spiritual ground¬ing of Advent expectation becomes more and more essential. Taking time for personal reflection and family devotion becomes just another item on parishioners' long to-do lists, often falling below endless shopping, wrapping, baking, and hosting. Sunday wor¬ship and Christmas Eve services are their primary opportunities to stop and consider the timeless truth and lasting promise of Advent, and pastors' primary opportunity to touch hearts and lives during this special season."

Since I use the Kindle version, I keep it open on my iPad while typing it into my computer. A bit old fashioned, but it works.
