Advent 2015

Advent 2016

We started this time of inner stillness at our mid-week service at St John in Moosup. We began with a soup & bread dinner and then a time of devotion and adult coloring. It was great. Come join us on Wednesday nights at 6:00 pm.No artistic talent needed – just the ability to color. All are welcome.

We are using this in place of our usual midweek Bible Study during Advent. A time of stillness, prayer and silence.

Amazing Grace Lutheran in Aberdeen, WA is using your artwork and theme during Advent. They have been great inspiration for our narrative lectionary readings.

Every Sunday our youth director put out a panel for members to draw on during coffee hour. The stories of welcoming, belonging and story sharing – among all ages – were amazing. Thank you for sharing this gift! I know of at least 3 churches in our synod who used these resources this advent.
