Stations of Christmas

One of the most unique ways I have found to meditate on this season of Advent is the following Stations of Christmas. In the original article, each station is accompanied by a reflection and prayer that helps to draw one into the emotional journey of the Holy Family similar to the Stations of the Cross in Lent.

If you are looking for a special way to help your family focus on the reason for the season, this might be a meaningful addition to your Advent prayers and a great way to remind children of the entire Christmas story. The meditative nature of the stations might also be appropriate for group settings at prayer groups or parishes. Find the full text here at Disciples Now.
