Most popular Advent posts at Lent and Beyond

With the turn of the calendar to November, it doesn’t seem too early now to be thinking about Advent.  I’m hopeful that we will be able to do a significant amount of Advent blogging at L&B this year.  I thought it might be helpful to post a round up of our most popular Advent entries from years’ past.   I’ve already updated some of the entries below with some new links for 2014.  I’ve also begun work on a new compilation of Advent resources, and an updated and comprehensive index of past years’ Advent entries.  Those should be appearing within the coming 7 – 10 days… stay tuned.

And, as always, please leave any recommendations or feedback in the comments.  Thanks!
