FREE 2023 Advent Resources: God was the first tailor, seamstress, and cobbler. He covered Adam and Eve’s shame and nakedness with garments of animal skin. He designed and instructed the Israelites on the priestly wardrobe of the Tabernacle. And now he clothes his children in the righteousness of Jesus, our King, who first came to us wrapped in swaddling clothes before he hung naked on the cross. This Advent season, 1517 presents The Clothing of the King: a new free resource for churches that walks your congregation through the divine wardrobe God provides for his people. This all-in-one package includes a midweek Advent and Christmas Sermon Series for pastors to use in their congregations as well as music helps, original and suggested hymns, presenter slides, and more. We’ve also created a personal devotional for every day of the 2023 Advent Season, written by 1517 contributors. The Clothing of the King is available as a free download. Sign up today to get access.
