An advent challenge

The Lasleys challenged our campus ministry to prepare for Christmas by reading the Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) between now and Christmas, and all it takes is 4 chapters a day!

So, this morning, our family started our Advent Gospel Challenge with Matthew. I'd encourage you to try something like this for your family, but one hint about Matthew 1: If you're reading aloud with your family, don't let one of your kids read through the geneology of Jesus unless you want to miss the school bus!!

Or, you could just sing Andrew Peterson's version:

*from our good friends at West Side Christian Church
