During Advent, I’ll be posting some short Advent reflections, with the idea of sharing together our Advent journey.
Gather your evergreens. Go buy (or make) purple and pink candles. Get wire to make your wreath and a few simple purple and pink ribbons to weave together the greens. Clear a space on the kitchen table or anyplace where your household gathers. Write down a short Bible passage on an index card – something from the Prophet Isaiah would be great – and keep it near the wreath.
Now that we’ve cleared a space for prayer and quiet celebration at home, we can begin clearing the same kind of space in our heart. It’s time to get ready!
