I mentioned the some Advent traditions a while back, and recommended the book, Treasuring God in Our Traditions by Noel Piper. Well, it looks like you can read this book online for free! So go have a look: http://www.desiringgod.org/store/books/ByTopic/All/377_Treasuring_God_in_Our_Traditions/
We started our Jesse Tree last night (I use the phrase Jesse Tree very loosely, we're getting ready to move so the symbols are just being taped to a door!) I love December-- Baby Jesus is coming!
