The Advent season is rapidly approaching us and will be here before we know it. For the past three years I have made it my practice to participate in the cycle of the Christian Church Calendar with Advent beginning the cycle of a new year. In the most recent two years I have written daily devotional meditations for the seasons spanning Advent to Christmastide into Lent and through to Pentecost. It has been an exceptionally moving and spiritually developmental exercise for me and I would recommend it highly for anyone seeking to move deeper into relationship with our Great Triune God.
There are scores of resources available to assist you through this season of meditation, but I would like to make a recommendation for “Waiting for the Light: an Advent Devotional” compiled by Susan Wade, Ricci Kilmer, and Christine Sine. The book is available through Mustard Seed Associates and they describe the devotional with these words:
Christians of all traditions are discovering the value of taking time in the days that lead up to Christmas to break away from the consumer frenzy of our culture and prepare their hearts and minds for the coming of Christ. This resource responds to this desire. It is more than a devotional, it is a complete guide to the Advent and Christmas season, providing liturgies, weekly activities and daily reflections to equip and nourish us all through the season.
Over the last few years we have hosted a blog series on Godspace during the Advent and Christmas season. Each year a rich feast of reflections are contributed by bloggers across the globe who love God and love to share their faith with others. The reflections in Waiting for the Light are drawn from these diverse and inspiring blog posts. They are designed to be used throughout Advent and Christmas as both a preparation for and a celebration of the birth of Christ.
I was one of the privileged bloggers who contributed to this devotional compilation and would love to share the incredibly rich blessings of these daily reflections, liturgies, and weekly activities that can help us enter into the season that celebrates the coming of Christ. I feel safe to assure that should you enter in to this devotional practice, you will be touched by God in ways you previously have never imagined.
