Note as of 17 November 2014: The listing of Advent resources below was first posted in 2008 (updated from previous compilations we’d done in 2004 – 2006). We last checked the links to make sure they worked in 2012. Obviously that’s an eternity ago in internet time, and there will be many obsolete links now. We’ll try to create a new similar listing for 2014 very soon if at all possible.
(Links were last verified to be working as of mid-November 2012)
Last updated: December 1, 2008
Update: Here’s the 2008 Advent Carnival post at A Ten O’Clock Scholar. Head over there for some links to nice Advent meditations and ideas about how to celebrate Advent as a family. Don’t miss also Kerry’s posts on Celebrating Saint Nicholas Day, or Advent Book Ideas
Wishing all of our readers a truly blessed Advent! — KB
Some new links for 2008:
I’ll soon be adding more links and putting them in proper categories, but this is a start. Most of these are not new sites, just new to me.
TeachingMom’s Advent Calendar you MUST-VISIT!
An online Jesse Tree Advent calendar
Holiday Cookie Recipes – over 600 cookie recipes! Scary… (for one’s waistline, that is!)
Subversive Influence blog – had a special Advent 2007 blog series. Some of the material looks like it might be very good, but I’ve not yet checked it out too carefully. Nor do I know if there will be a 2008 Advent series.
Our Grace Journey: Inductive Bible Studies for Advent (looks very good!)
American Bible Society Advent Resources page (includes short Advent devotional series for Matthew, Mark & Luke)
Advent 2008 blog — the entries will be focused on Isaiah
The Story-Formed calendar blog (Advent entries). I just discovered this blog devoted to resources for the liturgical year. There are some lovely Advent meditations and resources. Very worth a visit!
Here are some new L&B compilations posts that link to excellent Advent resources:
