Free Integrative Advent Journey: Anchor in Advent

This resource is a very intentionally different kind of Advent journey. Rather than trying to reinvent the wheel of a regular Advent devotion, my hope was to create a space where you can engage with all parts of your embodied being in the Advent season — an invitation to all the depths of your soul to be present and anchor in Advent. All too often, we only bring the most spiritual parts of us to devotions or Sunday morning services, and for good reason. There are plenty of shame messages that swarm around in our faith communities, explicitly or implicitly telling us to hide parts of us that are unwelcome. But, God didn’t come in human form just to be with the most shiny or spiritual parts of us. Christ shared intimate meals and moments with the most marginalized and judged people in society. God longs to be ‘God with us’ with all of us. So, these pages are to help you connect with all the facets of your soul, in order to connect those facets of your soul with God’s care — to experience the wonder and awe of God with us in a deeply embodied and holistic way this Advent.
