Advent Prayer Calendar Recommendation
We would wholeheartedly recommend this Advent Prayer Calendar hosted by a good friend of ours, Steve Barrington, via a Facebook group. If you're a Facebook User then feel free to check in and take a look.
Here's Steve's introduction,
"Welcome back to those who have walked this journey together with us before and welcome to our new friends on the road to Bethlehem this year.
December is often a month that rushes by so quickly. It gets filled with trips to shopping centres, fighting the crowds, running to different events, and trying to focus on the birth of Jesus in the midst of it all.
So, the invitation is before the first Sunday of Advent, December 3, to write down the names of 21 people - friends, family, enemies, people in our community, randoms from the shops, people in the news - that you would like to pray for.
Then allocate one for every day leading up to Christmas and on that day, pray for them. It's a deliberate opportunity to slow down and refocus on the God who put on skin to become one of us.
Each day a passage of scripture and short reflection will also be posted during the Advent season. It is a time of waiting, preparation and expectation.
May your advent season be filled with God's peace as you continue to serve and follow Jesus, a friend of sinners and outcasts."
