Liturgies – print ready bulletins
Each 2-page weekly bulletin includes an invitation to reflect in several different ways:
- by using weekly prompts to create short poems
- by coloring the bulletin images
Three different versions of each bulletin are available in both PDF and Publisher formats:
- black & white – may be colored during worship or at a later time
- color – includes both a full color image and a black & white image to be colored
This year the focus is on quieting and silencing in order to listen for God’s voice. Special music, Listen in the Silence, shared with permission of singer / songwriter, Linnea Good (sheet music / with accompaniment / mp3).
We invite you to consider beginning Advent Week 1 with all 4 Advent candles and the Christ candle lit. Each week, one candle will be extinguished as a visual representation of this centering and the call to listen only for God-with-us: Emmanuel. There is a brief paragraph at the beginning of each bulletin that explains this process. If you choose not to do this, you may simply delete the “Before we begin” section of the bulletin.
You are welcome to customize the resources or to use pieces of them to fit your own context, however we ask that you credit WayToLead.org and GrunewaldGuild.com.
