The season of Advent is itself a gift and we encourage you to take the time to receive it. Prepare your hearts for the Christ who is, who was, who will come again—notice him. Somehow, this time of year lends itself well to such seeing, and we hope these devotional tools and study opportunities help you in the journey.
Hands of Advent
Hands of Advent, is written by members of Trinity. The booklet follows the themes of Advent as practiced in our congregation. Each week will start with a painting symbolic of the week’s theme. We journey from Hope to Peace, Joy, and then celebrate God’s Love to us through His gift of the Christ child. Each day of the week will have an offered piece, either in prose or poetry. Each author has an unique style of writing that speaks to his or her individual view of the Advent emotions. The paintings are artistic creations by Mariana Csaszar from Washington D.C.
This booklet keeps pace with our worship themes for the four Sundays of Advent.
Circle of Light
Learn the bright and joyous message of the Advent wreath this season with a Stick-With-Me sticker book all about shining and sharing the Light of Christ. As colorful stickers are added to each page, we learn how the wreath helps to tell the story of Jesus, whose birth is at the center of all our Advent expectation. Gather around his manger and join the Circle of Light! A great way to help the story of Christmas really stick!
