Black Friday is less a day this year and more of a couple weeks, so we might not see the normal chaos from WalMart and Best Buy. Folks not trampling each other over smartphones and flat screen televisions is an improvement, of course, but the idol of stuff still claims socially distanced hearts and minds too.
One way is through the artificial perfections of Pinterest, Instagram, and Facebook. Pictures of perfectly decorated homes and Instagram-worthy holiday celebration videos with perfectly behaved children doing a lip-synch has become another distraction within a season meant for holy reflection.
Sunday begins the season of Advent, a time set aside in the history of the church for prayer, charity, and even fasting, to prepare us to celebrate the birth of Jesus and to point our hearts toward His return.
Over the years, we’ve compiled resources for Advent, to prepare our hearts and minds to celebrate Christmas. Come to breakpoint.org.
