Tell Out My Soul - An Advent Calendar
Sign-up for a daily email in Advent with stories from people throughout the diocese. How did God meet them in different situations in their lives? The lectionary readings of the Sundays in Advent will inspire the theme for each day's story to be delivered to your inbox.
The title of this Advent Calendar is the name of a much loved hymn, whose first line rings out, "Tell out, my soul the greatness of the Lord." The hymn is a paraphrase of Mary's Magnificat--the song Mary sings during her visit with her cousin Elizabeth. Elizabeth is about to give birth to John the Baptist, and Mary to Jesus. They rejoice together at the surprising new life stirring within them. The song is a promise of God setting the world right side up again (Luke 1:39-55).

For small groups
If you have a small group that would like to gather during Advent, this calendar can serve as a prompt to tell your own stories. Each week, you can reflect on the questions posed by the lectionary reading to tell stories and discuss what resonated for you in the stories offered in the daily emails. You can download the story questions below under DOWNLOADS.
