Advent 2023: What Does It Mean to Me? by Marsha Botts


And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins.

Matthew 1: 21

December 7, 2023

Abiding faith that God in human form would correct the repeated missteps of God’s people

Deliverance from tumult and waywardness

Vital for the victory

Everlasting promises revealed

Nevertheless and through it all God prevailed

Time and time again, testing and torn, but ultimately triumphant

Sister Marsha Turner Botts

Prayer: Heavenly Parent, in the midst of this season of preparation, please work with us to celebrate the original purpose of these days. Every year we seek more of thee and less of purchase and acquisition. Help us to get it right, at last. Amen


Advent Guide 2023

As we stand in expectation of peace on Earth and reflect on the events of our times and the lives of our brothers, sisters and siblings in Christ, we await change and new birth.

We seek, listen and perceive the presence of God in words of Hope, Peace, Joy and Love.

We invite you to join us in meditation, reflection, prayer and spiritual disciplines throughout the season of Advent and beyond.

Read along with us each day or download the book to read and reflect along with us offline.
