Praying through Advent
BY BUTCH ODOM

Advent: the start, the arrival, the dawn of a journey that leads us not only to Bethlehem but to a new understanding of our relationship to the world and to one another as people of faith. Advent is a journey in which the destination may not be known at the time of departure. As such, Advent is a journey of faith.

This collection of devotionals based on the lectionary readings is designed to help you focus your thoughts for a few minutes each day during Advent. As this is a journey, the scriptures often center on this idea of movement which is both physical and metaphorical in nature. As you experience this season of Advent, consider walking daily as a symbolic discipline of your Advent journey.
