ADVENT 2018

Prayerfully Readying Ourselves for Advent 2018

Special Advent Service

Sunday, Dec. 9 • 7-8pm in the Sanctuary

Join us as we gather together for a corporate night of contemplative music and prayer. Together we will express our longing for righteousness and anticipate celebrating Christmas. We will also look forward to Christ’s second arrival when all things will be made new. All are welcome.

Free Advent Readers

 

Journey Through the Gospel of Luke

This reading schedule  is designed to help you focus on the backstory, birth, and life of Jesus. Allow the Gospel of Luke to guide you through an Advent journey with Jesus. Do not worry about keeping to a rigid schedule. If you miss a day, simply jump back in when you can. Jesus will meet you. On the back of this reader, you will find an approach to Bible reading that is based on the ancient contemplative tradition of lectio divina (sacred reading) that may help you awaken to the closeness of God’s loving presence. A hard copy is available in the foyer at Cedar Park. Download a free pdf here.
