Advent Calendar

Beginning November 30, visit each day during Advent. Every day a new window opens offering you a moment of solace and reflection as to the true meaning of Advent and the coming Christmas Season. Each window will reveal a special Advent word, meditation and beautiful image. Go to www.SSJE.org/adventword for information about a beautiful Printed Advent Calendar, subscribing to the Adventword by email and responding with an image of your own on Instagram. #adventword

#AdventWord #Remember || Advent is a time to look for “desert places”: the place of solitude, the place of true silence in which we can become fully awake to our sin and God’s forgiving grace which alone can heal it.

#AdventWord #Imagine || During the day, at work, when we feel the pressures of the world’s values getting at us – when we feel lack of self-esteem – we can at once counter the cold dripping tap of anxiety with the warm, faithful images we meditate on in our time of prayer and quiet.

#AdventWord #Thrive || We were made for “Yes”. The arts and sports are about not merely surviving in this world, but thriving. He said that he came that we might have life—and have it abundantly. We were made for senseless acts of beauty—and fun! Br.

#AdventWord #Watch || God is continually giving us gifts, but we take them and forget God. The habit of prayer opens the eye of the soul to be watchful for God’s love, to recognize his hand in his gifts.

#AdventWord #Abide || God longs for a temple, not of stone and light, but of flesh and blood and a heart of full of love. Like Mary, you are God’s temple, for when you say ‘yes’ to God you open yourself to God and God’s glory abides in you; when you say ‘yes’ to God, the Word is made flesh and dwells among us. Br.

#AdventWord #Notice || Do you know when you’re caught? Know when you’re caught by God? I often don’t in the moment. But later when I stop and reflect, stop and silence myself in order to listen, I do notice God catching me. Br.

#AdventWord #Show Up || I think showing up is a very important spiritual discipline, but the form has to be complemented by God’s ongoing work of formation: what God is giving us is the ability to see and hear and savor and desire now.

#AdventWord #Respond || As big as God is, our conversations will sometimes begin in the simplest of ways….through the beauty of a flower or a strain of a Beethoven symphony. It could be through the cry of an infant or an epiphany that is born out of sheer silence. All we have to do is listen to how God is beginning the conversation and we will then know how to respond.

#AdventWord #WakeUp || Wake up and watch! That is the message of Advent. The effect of Advent on us should be like the blast of a cold shower after we’ve gotten out of bed, sleepy and bleary-eyed.

#AdventWord #Act	|| What we do with our hands is as important, and sometimes even more important, than what we think in our minds or speak with our mouths. Faith without works is a dry, lifeless, dead thing. If our faith does not lead us to action, then it has become a dead creedal affirmation of lifeless beliefs. Br.
