The word ADVENT means arrival.

It’s a time for waiting and preparing,

opening our hearts and minds to welcome the Christ child anew.

Poetry can help us as we wait

The best poems help us notice things

and feel things we might otherwise miss.

They take us from the depths of despair

to the heights of hope

and everywhere in between

 

Using the Facebook Live platform,

we will let scripture and Mary Oliver’s poetry be a guide

to enrich our experience of the season.

Grab your favorite Bible and the poems

(on-line or in the book Devotions by Mary Oliver.)

Let’s make our way to Bethlehem together.
