2015 Advent Prayer Guide

Join us as we reflect on some of the traditional themes of Advent; we’ll look for them in the darker corners of our world where the poor, oppressed, broken, and lonely dwell. Pray with us.

Advent is a time of preparation. It’s a time for seeking the presence of God in our world and watching for the “renewal of all things” (Matthew 19:28).

As we meditate on Advent, a powerful truth emerges: Christ does not save from a distance.

He walked among us. He dwelled with us. He went to the margins. God became flesh (John 1:14). He became poor (2 Corinthians 8:9). He identified with the oppressed and the excluded.

And He calls us to do likewise.

Dare to step into the margins

We cannot love from a distance. Christ calls us to follow Him into the margins. Over the next four weeks, we’ll reflect on some of the traditional themes of Advent: hope, faith, joy, and peace.

But we’ll look for them in unexpected places — in the darker corners of our world, where the poor and the oppressed, the broken and the lonely dwell.

Because that’s where Christ Himself dwells.
