In an effort to help you and your family set apart this Advent season we have created Simeon's Hope, a guide for Advent. The goal of this Advent guide is to help us place ourselves in the shoes of Old Testament saints who waited patiently for the arrival of the Messiah, Jesus - even as we wait patiently for his second coming to restore all things. Each day, there's a Scripture reading, a personal devotional reading, some reflection questions, and a daily family devotional guide that includes one stanza of a poem written just for this guide. We hope that you enjoy using this guide as we reflect on a good and gracious God who keeps his promises and will keep his promises in the future.

We have also created a playlist on Spotify to accompany your Advent guide readings. These are the songs listed in the family worship section of each day's reading. We hope you make it a practice to worship the Lord in song during this time of year, whether on your own or with your family as well!
