Because 2019 is the 300th anniversary of “Joy to the World” by Isaac Watts, we’ve chosen this beloved classic Christmas hymn as the basis for our FUMCFW Advent theme this year.
The first verse of the hymn has an important line that sets the tone for this year’s experience of Advent: “Let every heart prepare Him room.” Advent is a time for preparing our hearts once again to receive Christ into the center of our lives.
As we move through the Season of Advent, we invite you to deepen your Joy to the World Advent experience by following our daily Advent Devotional — online or via downloadable and printable PDF (we even have a limited number of these printed PDF copies available in the Main office on Weekdays and the Welcome Center on Sunday mornings.)
By adding this special focus on Joy to our thoughts and prayers throughout the Advent Season, we prepare our hearts and minds for joyful celebration of Christ entering the word.
