Are you in a flurry of decorating over there? Do you have boxes strewn around and things in process? Or are you one of those rare unicorns who has decorated already, and you’re enjoying hot chocolate by your crackling (or digital) fire?

I used to view decoration as something to simply do, on a long list of getting ready for the season. Christmas didn’t start until all the decorations were up and the house looked pristine. But what if preparation is holy? We prepare our hearts for Advent, for a focusing on Jesus, for these festive and hallowed holy days.

Whether you decorate in early November or are solidly in the After-Thanksgiving camp, Episode 42 of the Presently Engaged Podcast is for you. Your acts of decoration are in itself a celebration!
