Journeying the Way of Love:
For the season of Advent, Journeying the Way of Love offers four sessions to be explored as we await the coming of Christ by moving through the first two chapters of the Gospel of Luke. Luke’s gospel provides a pattern for understanding how we can live the Way of Love as individuals, as families and friends, as a community, and out in the world. The sessions are specially designed for use during the Christian formation hour before or after worship. Facilitation instructions accommodate small or large groups.
For the sixth year in a row, #AdventWord will gather prayers via a global, online advent calendar. Virginia Theological Seminary is offering 24 meditations and images during this holy season beginning Sunday, 1 December. Images and meditations can be experienced via the #AdventWord website and direct daily emails, as well as on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, as well as ASL videos via YouTube. This year, meditations will also be available in English, Spanish and Haitian Creole via email and on www.adventword.org.
