FINDING A QUIET TIME IN THIS SEASON OF ADVENT

Have you seen the labyrinth outside of the sanctuary? It’s been set up for anyone to spend some quiet time in this busy time of year. There is a book for you to read on the table. It’s called Unwrapping the Greatest Gift: A Family Celebration of Christmas written by Ann Voskamp. It’s a collection of daily devotions with questions to ponder for the season of Advent. I highly recommend this book. The author has a gift of making connection between the stories in the Bible and the gifts all around us. There are also nativity figures waiting for you to travel with you. If you intend to walk the labyrinth, hold a figure of your choice in your hand, and when you reach the centre of the labyrinth, put it in the nativity scene, knowing that you are a part of God’s story. However you spend this season, please know that you’ll never walk alone. Advent blessings!
