For a few years now I have had a weekly devotional series over the four weeks of advent. It has served as a way to intentionally focus during this time of the year that can be extremely busy.
Prepare him room
For this year, I am focusing a little phrase from the Christmas carol ‘Joy to the World’.
What does “let every heart prepare him room” mean? When a guest comes to stay, we prepare a room for them. Maybe there is work to do as well in preparing room for Christ at Christmas? Maybe we need to clear out some things to create space for him, like clearing out the spare room for the arrival of a guest.
This advent join with me as I investigate this phrase prepare him room …
In the waiting
In 2018 I focused on the fact that the word advent means waiting, and so the series is called In the waiting. The links for each week are below.
Slow My Christmas
In 2017, I endeavoured to slow my Christmas and my reflections centred around that intentional push back against the busyness of this time.
Journey in Quiet
In 2016, I embarked on a journey in quiet and reflected on how quieting your mind, body, heart and spirit is essential as you enter into this time of the year.
