Advent Calendar: It's not too late to make one and catch up!

Question: When Does Advent 2012 Begin?
The season of Advent, the time of preparation for the coming of Christ at Christmas and the start of the liturgical year in the Roman Catholic Church, begins on a different date each year. When does Advent 2012 begin?
Answer: Advent 2012 begins on the First Sunday in Advent, December 2, 2012.
You can find a full schedule of all the Sundays and all major feasts during Advent 2012 in the Catholic Liturgical Calendar for Advent 2012. And make sure to check out this list of Family Activities and Devotions for Celebrating Advent.

 Advent: A Savior for All People

 Click on the order button below to download this   4-session Study Through the Bible Study as a  Microsoft Word file. You'll receive a Bible-based guide for personal use or group discussion.
If you like this Bible study course, you might also like Advent: A Savior for all People Church Discipleship Campaign. Get all these Bible studies plus preaching materials, icebreaker & worship tips, and more.


Use this 4-session study to focus on Christ this Christmas. We can learn from Zechariah and Elizabeth how to prepare our hearts to receive all that God has for us. Mary teaches us about the true meaning of Christmas. We learn how to prioritize our Christmas from the shepherds. And Simeon and Anna teach us how to respond to the best gift of all time.
Session One

Be Prepared
Are you ready to receive what God is offering this Christmas?
Luke 1:1–25

We need real time and space markers that remind us of the great events that define our faith. But if our Christmas is to be spiritually successful, we’re going to have to fight for it. And the way to do that is through preparation.
Session Two

The True Spirit of Christmas
Are you where God wants you to be this holiday season?
Luke 1:26–56

The true spirit of Christmas is not the spirit of family bonding or even the spirit of rejoicing. All of those things are well and good, but Mary teaches us that the true spirit of Christmas is a spirit of humility.
Session Three

A Christmas To-Do List
What’s at the top of your list this season?
Luke 1:57–2:21

If we look hard enough, we might find a whole new piece of the Nativity scene that’s been in the closet for years—never unwrapped.
Session Four

The Bad (or Good) News About Jesus
Jesus’ birth was the best thing that could happen to you—or the worst.
Luke 2:22–38

The day after Christmas can be disappointing. Perhaps Mary and Joseph felt similarly after Jesus’ birth. In the days to come they had to face the bad news with the good.

Christmas Treats Blog Hop! Mine: Cinnabon Christmas Trees

Cinnabon in the Pillsbury can, Red Sprinkes in the Cinnabons, and a freeze fried cranberries in the middle of the Cinnabon, Unbleached coffee filter for the tree skirt, and Jolee's Scrapbooking Supplies (presents on the tree skirt!) and a red and silver bow for the tree topper. When I do this again I will use parchment paper  (which is showing a $1.00 0ff Coupon)for the background! I think the white is better than the foil background.

We are all so addicted to the Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls by Pillsbury.  We usually have 1-2 of their products in our refrig. at all times during the month of December because we never really know when we will want it for breakfast, dessert or have company over and have an easy to prepare dessert for Christmas.

Enjoy the HOP!"
