Advent is a special time of year when we wait expectantly for the joy of Christmas. Advent is a season filled with rich imagery, colors and symbols. One of the most powerful images that comes out of this season is that of light. As Christians we journey through advent by lighting candles in preparation of a much larger and brighter light. John says it well in his Gospel, “The true light that gives light to every- one was coming into the world”, and then a few verses later John de- clares this powerful statement, “the word became flesh.” Our focus this advent season is on the task of “rediscovering the light.” It is easy to be overwhelmed by the details of the season and forget the larger event that took place two thousand years ago when God sent his light into the world through the birth of his son.

In years past we have passed out and offered Advent Devotionals. This year instead of a devotional we are giving you a list of possible activities that are meant to help you and your family redis- cover the light of Christ. Our challenge to you is to choose one activity each week during Advent to complete together as a family. We are giving each family four glow sticks one for each week. As you choose and participate in these activities activate one glow stick as a re- minder of the presence of the light of Christ in whichever activity you are completing. You are not limited to four and we have given you a wide variety of activities to choose from for all ages. Enjoy this season of advent and let’s rediscover the light of Christ.

Libertyville Covenant Church has been invited to participate in a “Sticky Faith” learning cohort.  “Sticky Faith” is a research based initiative out of Fuller seminary that is designed to address the nation wide exodus of young adults from the church and their faith.  Our young people today are wrestling with the place of faith and the church in their lives as they engage a increasingly secular culture.  The heart of this movement is to help churches thinking more intergenerationally and develop church wide strategies for the faith development of your young people.   The following is a short summary of “Sticky Faith” and the essential elements of this movement!
