Ben Akers on Advent

November 23, 2021

Whereas the world prepares you for Christmas by spending money, the Church prepares you for Christmas for the season of Advent. Dr. Ben Akers joins Dr. Tim Gray on this week's episode of the Augustine Institute Show to discuss how we can live a counter-cultural life leading up to the Christmas season. Dr. Akers shares the true meaning of Advent and offers suggestions on practicing different rituals and sharing the faith with your children.
