Day 10, Advent

This is a poem from Dietrich Bonfoeffer that I really enjoyed reading today.  I hope it also offers you blessings this day. Great things are promised, and they are imminent. Incredible events are proclaimed, events that no human ear has heard; unrevealed mysteries are opened up. The earth and humankind  are already quaking under their advance. And a prophetic voice cries into a frightened world: The kingdom of heaven has come near. The Lord God himself is coming, the... Read More

Day 9, Advent

There are some wonderful advent devotions in print and online.  One of my favorite online devotion comes from d365.0rg .  Each day you'll find a short devotion written by a person of faith.  In a few minutes you'll have a chance to be still, to hear God's word, read a short reflection, and know God's blessing for you.  In Advent, the devotion is accompanied by wonderful music.  Click here for today's devotion. Peace, Laurie Read More

Day 8, Advent

Today is the second Sunday of Advent.  Today we light the candle that symbolizes peace.  We continue to sing and pray, "O Come, O Come, Emanuel."  In worship we'll read Isaiah 11: 1-10.  Let these words from God guide you this week.   A shoot shall come out from the stump of Jesse, and a branch shall grow out of his roots. The spirit of the Lord shall rest on him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might,...

Day 7, Advent

Week one of Advent comes to an end today.  Week one is about hope.  I'm jumping on the coloring bandwagon and sharing this Hope coloring page with you today.  Maybe you print it out and color it as you pray for those who hope, those who are hopeless, those who wait on the Lord.   Or maybe you think that's a little too out there for you, so you simply read and pray about Romans 5:3-5a, which says, "And not only that, but we also boast in our sufferings,...

Day 6, Advent

This video is very simple.  So simple it invites us to do just what it says, to wait and to be still.  Let this day provide moments to be still and to wait, trusting that God is with us. Peace, Laurie Read More

Day 5, Advent

Walter Brueggemann was one of my professors in seminary.  He is a powerful and prolific writer and a great teacher.  He writes a prayer before every class or sermon or lecture and these prayers are beautiful.  Here is a prayer he wrote entitled, "Waiting and Longing" as he read Daniel.  It's words are wonderful for the Advent season as well. God of the seasons, God of the years, God of the eons,      Alpha and Omega,     ... Read More
