God With Us Advent EP // Over the last month our team has been recording and producing a special Advent music project entitled “God With Us.” As we’ve been sensing a call to live as “Rooted Renegades” over this last year, one of the most “renegade” postures we sense an invitation to live into during this Advent season is to simply slow down and root ourselves in patience and waiting. For centuries, the universal Church has waited patiently for the arrival of a King. A Word full of hope, joy, peace and love tore through the brokenness of humanity to call us into the Light; The light of Emmanuel, God with us. We hope this small collection of songs grants an opportunity for you to enter into worship….both from a place of remembrance and anticipation. God is with us.
The Jesus Storybook Bible Advent Guide // The team at Zondervan have created a reading plan and some beautiful printable ornaments to make your Advent season especially meaningful as a family. For every day of Advent, there is a printable ornament, and on the reverse of each ornament there is the related story to read in The Jesus Storybook Bible, and the scripture passage it comes from. As your family adds the ornaments to the tree, trace God’s hand through all the stories, and tell the one big story of God’s Great Rescue Plan through every day of Advent—starting with creation and leading up to Jesus’ birth.

Watch for the Light: Readings for Advent and Christmas // Though Christians the world over make yearly preparations for Lent, there’s a conspicuous lack of good books for that other great spiritual season: Advent. All the same, this four-week period leading up to Christmas is making a comeback as growing numbers reject shopping-mall frenzy and examine the deeper meaning of the season. These fifty devotions invite the reader to contemplate the great themes of Christmas and the significance that the coming of Jesus has for each of us – not only during Advent, but every day. Whether dipped into at leisure or used on a daily basis, Watch for the Light gives the phrase “holiday preparations” new depth and meaning. Includes writings by Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Brennan Manning, C. S. Lewis, Christoph Friedrich Blumhardt, Sylvia Plath, T. S. Eliot, and many others. Available in hardcover and paperback only.

Jotham’s Journey: A Storybook for Advent // Over and over Jotham screamed for his family, but there was no one to hear him. They had vanished. He was alone. Where had they gone? How long ago had they left? Through quick, stabbing sobs Jotham told himself, ‘I must look for my family, I must search until I find them.’ And so his journey begins. In this widely popular, exciting story for the Advent season, readers follow ten-year-old Jotham across Israel as he searches for his family. Though he faces thieves, robbers, and kidnappers, Jotham also encounters the wise men, shepherds, and innkeepers until at last he finds his way to the Savior born in Bethlehem. Recommended for ages 4 and up.
