To prepare for this season we created art as a community. You were invited to bring photos, drawings, names or quotes to place on a large image of Mary and Elizabeth that are a part of our Advent liturgical art.
During this season, we will be invited to continue naming the women in our lives, the ways their gifts have shaped us, and claiming those gifts for ourselves. One way to experience this is to set aside a specific centering time each week to light an Advent candle. You can do this as an individual or a family.
Each week in the bulletin and the weekly email, we will supply a brief devotional for this centering time. It will include a few words of reflection, a time of naming, and a prayer of gratitude. You might also simply do this on your own, using the following outline.
¨ The week of December 1: Growing
¨ The Week of December 8: Connecting
¨ The Week of December 15: Imagining
¨ The Week of December 22: Birthing
