Advent is the time to prepare for the miracle of the coming of Christ but often the world will not allow us to take the time necessary to fully experience this miracle. We at Fremont UMC hope you will join us this season with a daily devotion using the book – “Simply Wait”
Cultivating Stillness in the Season of Advent
Author: Pam Hawkins
Publisher: Upper Room
ISBN 13: 9780835899178
Publication Date: 08/2007
If you want to join me on this journey, please purchase a copy of the book in print or on line – it is available on Amazon in a Kindle format as well. Then I will post each day and hope that many of you will respond to that post as a way to share our preparation for Advent. The author of the book states: ” For the four weeks of Advent, participants will focus on a single word and a single, simple prayer practice that does not require extensive preparation or previous experience. Readings for each week offer creative reflections rooted in scripture, and engaging questions that stimulate our anticipation for a meaningful Christmas season.”
I hope to be hearing from many of you so watch for my post on December 2nd.
