Over the last few weeks the MSA team has been busy working to put together a new Advent resource – Waiting for the Light. I hope that you will consider joining us in using this throughout the Christmas and Advent seasons. 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.
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.
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. Each week of Advent focuses on a different theme:
- week 1: preparing
- week 2: seeking or expecting
- week 3: waiting
- week 4: becoming
- The theme for the twelve days of Christmas is incarnation.
Each week begins with a prayer or liturgy that incorporates the week’s theme. in other activities that may help you and your family focus more meaningfully on the these seasons of the liturgical year.
