Little Blue Book
Six minutes a day. That’s what you’re asked to give during these next 43 days – the 24 days of the Advent season, and the 19 days of the Christmas season. Each 24-hour day has 240 “six-minute” blocks of time. During the Advent and Christmas seasons, you’re asked to give just one of those to the Lord. Little Blue Books will be available in the narthex beginning the first weekend of Advent.
