Advent Resources for 2017

The anticipation of Advent is upon us as we wait in expectation for God’s redeeming love to enter our world.  During this season, we consciously make room, we actively wait. To help, the Canadian Baptists has once again prepared an Advent Reader in collaboration with the sister denominations and Canadian Baptist Ministries. Each year, we find writers from across the Canadian Baptist family, from the east coast to the west coast and everywhere in between.

This year’s Advent reader focuses on three questions:

  1. Who is Christ?
  2. Who are we in Christ?
  3. What is his kingdom?

We hope you will join us on our journey toward Bethlehem this Advent season.
