The Advent season has begun. YouVersion has an interesting program where you can sign up and read a passage of Scripture each day of the season. Readings are accompanied by commentary. This program is distinctive because you can sign up and receive updates and reminders online, through email or on your mobile phone.
I like this quote from the opening day:
Each day provides daily reflection questions and often a suggested activity to help you center that day on Jesus. You can go in order or you can skip around and pick a day that you feel would be the most beneficial. You can go through the plan as an individual, but think of ways to do them in groups or as a family.
Our family is going to try to follow this plan, it’s nice to be able to keep up with it on my mobile phone. We’ve used a variety of plans during advent and I’m looking forward to trying this one.
How about you? What part does the Bible play in your Christmas celebrations?

Note: My post originally stated that Advent begins on December 1. This year it actually started on November 28, the fourth Sunday before December 25. Thanks to Peter and others for the correction.
