This week the weather in Seattle has taken a definite turn towards winter. Over the weekend I worked on the video I produce each year as an Advent reflection. Both of these things made realize that Advent is on its way and I once again want to invite you to participate with me in celebrating it.
My theme during this Advent will be Jesus is Near – How do We Draw Close? and I would like you to participate. If you would like to contribute a reflection of 300- 500 words to be published during Advent as a guest post please comment below. I am particularly interesting in the meaningful spiritual practices you participate in during this season that draw you closer to God, to God’s people and to God’s world. And that could take the form of a written reflection, a song, a poem, photos or video.
For so many this is a difficult season often because the frenetic busyness of the secular world draws us away rather than towards God and our preparations for the coming of Christ. So how do we counteract that? I look forward to your reflections which I am sure will be helpful to many.
