“Seeking the Christ Child” is our theme for Advent. We are putting together an Advent devotional book.
We will be focusing on the first 2 chapters in Luke, and on being an “eyewitness” as we seek the Christ child. I invite you to read through the first 2 chapters and listen to where you hear God speaking to you.
These 2 chapters are some of my favorites. We learn about the angel Gabriel who stands in the presence of God. We meet Elizabeth and Zechariah, and see again how age is no limit for the power of God at work. Of course we learn of Mary and of her faithfulness. We see how the baby Jesus has been long awaited. These 2 chapters are star-studded and action packed.
Some questions to ponder: How has God spoken to you in your life? Where do you see God at work right now in the world? As we await the Christ child, for what do we ultimately desire? How can we express our longing and our fulfillment in God? How can we be an eyewitness to God’s work in our lives?
We would love to share with the congregation your thoughts. Write your reflections in 2-3 paragraphs and we will print and have booklets to hand out for Advent. This way we can be in conversation with the story of Jesus and learn from each other this Advent season.
