Waiting for Jesus in a Can’t Wait World
is an Amazing New Concept
for our “electronically connected” teens, family and friends.
There are two exciting features in this Advent book. Each day, beginning November 30, 2014, following the devotion, there is a Share and a Thought Prompt. These two “brain-rattlers” provide food to feast on each day, leading up to Christmas, rather than a steady diet of “gimme.”
1: Shares: (text, tweet, post to FB, blogs, Pinterest, or anywhere.)The plan: to bring Jesus Christ into the daily thoughts of our family and friends. Rather than thinking about the presents they will get or give on Christmas Day, they will focus on the presence of God, through the Share that you will text, email, or post to them.
2: Thinking about Jesus Thought Prompts: Also: Fun, Thought Prompts can be posted, emailed and/or texted, so our family and friends can brainstorm about ideas that will fill them with Jesus as they wait for Christmas. When they get home, you can discuss the Prompt around the supper table or in a moment together.
The Devotion is based on scripture and completed with a prayer, using Prayer Therapy, as taught in the book, the Prayer Therapy of Jesus. Prayer Therapy is praying specifically, as Jesus taught us, so God can answer specifically.
