advent 19 beyond us RECOLOR full size final

Waiting for Jesus in the Season of Advent

We might feel comforted to think of God being with us rather than God beyond us. But perhaps it’s also reassuring to realize that God is bigger than us, different from us, more than us. When we let God be as “big” as God is, and we let ourselves be as “small” as we are, we discover a yearning for God, a yearning that pulls us toward Christmas, like iron drawn to a magnet.

We hope you will use the 24 days of Advent as a rich time of spiritual growth. A little time each week pays off big dividends. And, to help you, we’ll send you a meditation, one for each of the four weeks of Advent from the collection "Cloth from the Cradle" by Iona Community Wild Goose Worship Group. Check your email inbox each week for these special reflections.

And after Advent, look for our Christmas theme: Christ With Us and, in Epiphany: On the Way Together.
