Advent Devotions

Calling all writers, raconteurs, storytellers and yarn spinners!

We are fast approaching Advent and our annual tradition of daily Advent meditations. The stories we tell in our Advent devotions are a great way for us to get to know each other a little better and stay connected.

We’d love to hear your stories. As in years past, we have a person from the congregation write a personal story, meditation, devotion, or poem for each day of our Advent season.

You don’t need to be an accomplished writer or theologian. Stories from our own lives can help other folks know they’re not alone on this journey. You can share a Christmas memory, a holiday tradition, stresses of the season or perhaps where your grandmother keeps her secret stash of peanut brittle. Maybe a lesson, observation, or thought about our months spent in a pandemic. You may want to write a poem or devotion on the lectionary text but you need not be bound by the scripture passage. There is no word count or particular length needed for the writings, so you don’t need to write a long piece.
