As it does every year, Advent comes upon us much too quickly, and we get caught up in the whirlwind of activities and preparations that lead to Christmas. It will be January before we know what hit us. We will have rushed through another Advent, hardly stopping to take a breath and wonder at the good news of Emmanuel, "God with us."

This study pack is designed for those who want to slow down and sink into the Advent season. It is inspirational and devotional in nature, an experiential Advent-ure through the weeks of Advent. During these five sessions we will utilize music, art, poetry, and a variety of interactive activities centered on biblical passages that connect to Advent.

Each session includes

  • a Bible passage that relates to Advent;
  • time for guided prayer using a unique format each week;
  • thoughtful reflection on music, art, and poetry;
  • guided meditation;
  • suggestions for continuing the Advent-ure during the week.

This Advent-ure isn't for everyone. It is for those who want to immerse themselves in the season of Advent, to journey through this season at a mindful pace. We will walk with Mary and Joseph on the road to Bethlehem, taking time to "ponder these things in our heart."
