Advent is a time for reflection in preparation for the Joy of Christmas. Here are some helpful links that will give you daily emails during Advent.
What does Advent mean for you? Is it mostly a time of shopping and cooking and decorating and overwhelming busyness, in preparation for the arrival of the big event, Christmas Day? Or can it be, however briefly, a time of quiet contemplation for you each day; of waiting for the arrival of a baby we call Jesus, the Christ?
In this year’s PWRDF Advent devotions, four theologians and writers offer unique reflections as they connect the Advent themes of hope, peace, joy and love, to their ministries. To read more or to sign up, please click on the following link: PWRDF Reflections
Each reflection is linked to a PWRDF story to connect this time of waiting with the ‘work’ of waiting that we are called to do; the work of creating – in the words of our vision statement – “a truly just, peaceful and healthy world.”
For the sixth year in a row, #AdventWord will gather prayers via a global, online Advent calendar. Virginia Theological Seminary is offering meditations and images during this holy season beginning Sunday, 1 December. Images and meditations can be experienced via the #AdventWord website, direct daily emails, as well as on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, and ASL videos via YouTube. This year, meditations will also be available in English, Spanish, and Haitian Creole.
