Advent is the season of 4 Sundays before Christmas when we prepare for the big day, Jesus’ birth, God with us. To better know God’s mission, work and hope for us through the life Jesus in our midst we’ll be reading scripture together through Advent.
Scripture is best read together, we learn much about our common faith and our God when we hear the insights from each other’s experience, prayers and other responses to scripture.
One person will provide a reflection on the scripture each day and it will be shared on our website. Feel free to read along or simply to read their reflections. Or sign up to offer a reflection yourself! Responses will be posted from people of all ages and for the very shy can be made anonymously.
When it is your turn you may read all or just one of the scriptures for the day. Write a reflection on one of the scriptures that says something to you about your experience or about who God is or about our preparation for Christmas. The reflection can be as short or long as you like, it can be a story, a few paragraphs, a poem, a prayer or anything else you like. Please email your reflection to Rev. Nick (firstname.lastname@example.org) on the evening before your day.
