Advent begins on 3 December, and we’re pleased to be able to share the following links from member churches and partners for this special season (send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a link we can add (in any language)):
Presbyterians Today offers a bilingual Advent devotional (in English and Spanish).
A guide adapted from the Presbyterian Hunger Program offers ways to celebrate a Christ-centered Christmas and turn a season of consumption into a season of just living.
The United Reformed Church offers liturgies for each Sunday of Advent: Walking the Way. Walking the way and living the life of Jesus in Advent is a journey towards, and beyond, the celebration of the incarnation, releasing boundless hope, peace, love and joy into the world. As we follow a well-known candle-lighting ritual, let us ask questions for today: how can we walk in hope or peace or love or joy in everyday life?
Scott Hoezee, the director for the Center for Excellence in Preaching at Calvin Theological Seminary, has posted a series of sermon and worship ideas for churches to use.
In a global campaign during Advent, the World Council of Churches invites people across the globe to extend “A Light of Peace” for the Korean Peninsula and for a world free from nuclear weapons.
