Advent Season Meditations

posted Nov 28, 2019, 8:39 AM by Tim Isbell   [ updated Dec 22, 2019, 7:35 AM ]
At the start of Advent in 2018, I started writing meditations for a full Christian year. Instead of writing articles for humans, I address each meditation to God. I did it to enlighten my personal prayer life and intending to publish these the following year.

A year later, I counted 71 written meditations, meaning that I spent about five days refining and living in the context of each one. Now in the first year of publishing these meditations, the project remains enjoyable and fulfilling in my own life. Through this year of publishing, I revisit each meditation and find myself adding new ones along the way.

I encourage you to follow along. As the calendar ticks through the year, you can join me in building this project into your spiritual life. Perhaps you will write some reflections of your own! Or you can choose titles from my Table of Contents and jump directly to them. Some of you will need fresh material to minister to someone, or to address your church, or in some other setting. You are welcome to use any of my meditations in any way you like.

To get started, I suggest that you read Responsive Prayer Meditations. It includes all you need to know to take full advantage of the project, and it provides links to access the “Advent season meditations.”

(Also, If you're a minister or worship leader and looking for Advent readings for public worship settings, please check out Advent Readings.)

Blessings, Tim
