                         Advent 2016 Reflections: Come, Walk in the Light!

We have developed a short weekly devotional guide to help you anticipate the coming of Christ and celebrate Christmas.  A focus statement and scripture for each Sunday are given, followed by reflection questions.  

We invite you to read, ponder, meditate, pray, and discern where the Spirit is leading you this Advent season.  

Look below for a new devotional link each week of Advent (Nov. 27 - Dec. 18) and also for Christmas Sunday (Dec. 25) and Epiphany (Jan 1).     

Advent 1 (Nov. 27): God's peace is at hand. Come, imagine the Way!

Advent 2 (Dec. 4): God's harmony is at hand. Come, prepare the Way!

Advent 3 (Dec. 11): God's healing is at hand. Come, magnify the Way!

Advent 4 (Dec. 18): God's restoration is at hand. Come, embody the Way!

Christmas (Dec. 25): Jesus is born! Come, welcome the Way!

Epiphany (Jan. 1): God's day of radiance is at hand. Come, walk in the Light!
