An Advent of Giving 2019

Filled grocery bags

This devotional contains readings, reflections, and prayers for a portion of the Advent season. We ask you to read the Scripture, meditate on the message, pray the prayer – and add a non-perishable food item to a box or bag. Bring them with you to worship the next Sunday. We will deliver them to the Food Basket.

If you are using this resource in some place and time that you cannot worship at Church of the Holy Cross, please bring your food gifts to a convenient hunger ministry.

Advent 2019

An ancient vision newly understood.
A mother’s vision of a righteous world.
A clarion summons, so harshly declaimed.
A child born to promise beyond hope.

Let Advent come in spirits filled with light.
Let Advent come to fill the cupboards bare.
Let Advent come to give the weary hope.
Let Advent come with love and peace and joy.
