Whether you have been anticipating another liturgical year or have just remembered Advent with this reading, Advent is upon us! As a season, it is gift to the Church. With it's emphasis on intention and reflection and practice, it is a gift from the Church to the culture as well. Who doesn't want more spiritual meaning over Christmas?
In response to the Church's need for a re-energized liturgy and for the culture's longing for spiritual direction, Urban Skye Publishing has created five unique Advent Guides. Over the years they've been used by individuals, families, staff, small groups and congregations. They've been practiced, prayed over and preached through; some have used them as their Christmas card!
Each guide has a very distinct theme but they share in common a disarming beauty, an inviting language and an invitation to explore the Nativity Story personally. Each guide was created with the idea that it could be handed to a non-churched neighbor as easily as an over-churched friend. As we see it, Advent is the most natural time of the year to invite anyone to explore the origin story of Jesus.
