2018 Advent Resource

Living in the Edge

How do we find our way when one thing is ending and another thing is beginning? In the great joys and sorrows of our lives, and in the economic, political and climatic changes of our world, how do we live in the in-between? Maybe you’re wondering what’s next for you in life and what God is calling you to do. How do you look and listen for God’s leading when you’re not sure what is ahead? This in-between place can be a place full of challenge and also surprising new life. This Advent, explore the edges of life through images of edge habitat, birth, and the places where we encounter our neighbour.

You can choose to receive the content in two formats: via a daily email or downloadable booklet.

Living in the Edge is a series of daily reflections for individuals and weekly gatherings for small groups. Reflection and facilitation guides for small groups will be provided. The small groups are based upon gospel-based discipleship supported by the Anglican Council of Indigenous Peoples.  The weekday Advent meditations are also email-based and offer nourishment for daily individual reflection at home. Through the scripture readings we can explore our edges and ask John the Baptist "What should we do?" and sing of transformation with Mary.
