The Nativity Fast (Advent) begins for Orthodox Christians on November 15. The rest of Christianity won’t begin Advent until the beginning of December. Several years ago, I authored a book entitled “Let All Creation Rejoice: Reflections on Advent, the Nativity and Epiphany.” It consists of a daily reflection for every day from November 15-January 7, based on 40 verses of Scripture surrounding the Nativity. I don’t use these reflections on the Prayer Team, they are only found in this book. Many of you have purchased this book in the past. If you have not, I encourage you to get a copy today, or perhaps purchase one for a friend who can use a little more inspiration this Christmas season. The book can be purchased on Amazon.
