Longing For…

It’s sometimes hard to put words to, but at our deepest levels, to be human is to long for something, not a day, an event, or a thing, but something outside of ourselves. In our best attempts the words we might use to describe this longing are hope, love, joy, and peace. This season of Advent, these weeks leading up to Christmas, are a time to sit in that longing, to live it, to feel it, to experience and reflect on what it really is we desire—and after sitting with this longing we might find that when we raise a candle on Christmas Eve that indeed our longing has arrived—that our longing is “With us”—that God is with us.

As we long for the coming Christ together, download this year’s Advent Devotional Guide below.
