Advent booklet 2021

Advent is a season of anticipation and reflection, a time of the year when we prepare our hearts for the coming of the Messiah.  As we wait and watch together over the next four weeks, we invite you to use this devotional brochure, filled with prayers, scripture readings, poems, and other resources, to deepen your Advent journey.  Our theme this year is “liminality.”  How do we seek and encounter God in the “thin” or liminal places of our lives, when we are betwixt and between, filled with hope but still waiting for the fulfillment of our yearnings?  We pray that as you read and share this booklet, you will sense the love and closeness of God, who is faithful to meet us everywhere — even and especially in the thin places.
