So for us as a family, Advent is a season to remember but to also look forward to Jesus promise to return. In the church, Advent is marked with the lighting of one candle on each of the four Sundays in the season. The lighting of each candle reminds us of a the story of Jesus coming and his coming again. For years, we would light these candles as a family, but that's a blog for another time. Advent is also a time where we as a family reflect on the birth narrative of Jesus.
A number of years ago, when our kids were still little, friends of our introduced us to Jotham's Journey, and Advent adventure book that shares to story of Jesus' birth through the eyes of a young shepherd boy named, Jotham.
Jotham is the youngest of his brothers, charged with the protection of their father's sheep. Set in the weeks just before Jesus' birth, Jotham is unexpectedly separated from his family. When he realizes what has happened, he set's out to find his family. This leads Jotham on a thrilling adventure that changes his life.
