Christianity Today has put together a digital Advent Devotional entitled Living Hope that includes daily devotional readings, weekly Bible studies, and a Bible reading guide.  See below for available downloads.

This digital guide offers 4 weeks of daily devotions for the seasons of Advent and Christmas, all on the theme of hope developed throughout the Old and New Testaments. Each day features meaningful spiritual reflection with devotions from respected leaders such as Thabiti Anyabwile, Marlena Graves, Charlie Dates, our very own Senior Pastor, Ken Shigematsu and more!

Week 1: He Will Come Again in Glory
During the first week of Advent, devotions reflect on the nature of Christian hope as we await the Second Advent.

Week 2: God's Presence and His Promises
Next, we ponder the prophecies and promises of hope that pointed toward the First Advent: the coming of the Messiah.

Week 3: Immanuel: God With Us
Explore the miracle of hope breaking through in the First Advent, as God miraculously worked in the lives of ordinary people to enter into the world as Immanuel—God with us.

Week 4: A Savior is Born
We consider the hope Advent offers in our own experiences of pain and darkness as we trust in the one who was, who is, and who is to come.
