We’re Ian and Breanna Speir — husband and wife, and parents of a rambunctious set of three. Ian is the chancellor (legal counselor) of the Anglican Diocese of the Rocky Mountains. We're members of New Life Downtown, a liturgically oriented congregation of New Life Church in Colorado Springs. We started this site for individuals, families, and churches who — like us — seek to rediscover a more Christ-centered, historically rooted holiday season.

At KeepingAdvent.com, we strive to be ecumenical in our focus. Our hope and prayer is that every stream of the Christian faith will find insight and spiritual enrichment in these pages.

Advent and Christmas are our favorite times of the year. While we've not yet exhausted the depth and riches of these seasons, we’re learning better how to keep them each year. We hope this site helps you do the same.
