Simple Gifts “ ’Tis the gift to be simple, ’tis the gift to be free…” In the spirit of the traditional Shaker tune, Presbyterians Today’s 2012 Advent devotions invite you to prepare the way for the birth of Jesus simply and generously. The calendar features Scripture readings, meditations and prayers for each day of the Advent season. Children, families, congregations and individuals are invited to explore the biblical story on a deeper level by creating their own simple gifts. Adam Fischer, author of this year’s calendar, is associate pastor of Harvey Browne Presbyterian Church in Louisville, Ky. Illustrations by Carrie Neumayer.
