God's World in Community: Advent

The word “Advent” springs from the Latin word adventus (“coming”) – looking back to Christ’s first coming as well as forward to his second coming. Through God’s World in Community: Advent, participants of all ages use visual arts to explore sessions titled

  • Anticipate (Luke 21:29-33)
  • Prepare (Luke 3:4-6)
  • Expect (Luke 3:15-16)
  • Welcome (Luke 1:39-41)
  • Celebrate (Luke 2:6-11)
  • Proclaim (Luke 2:45-48)
  • Shine (John 1:1-5)

This flexible, simple resource for intergenerational gatherings is based on the Revised Common Lectionary readings for Year C and includes scripture passages from the four Sundays of Advent, Christmas Eve, and the two Sundays of Christmas. Each of the seven sessions features a scripture reading, options for visual art creations, wonder together prompts for conversation, and a prayer. 

For use in small or large groups in person, online or at home, for all ages. Sample here.

Introduction includes all the details for making God's World in Community: Advent a success.
