Looking to Advent

Jacqui SkempComment

Advent is just over two weeks away. I feel like we were just digging our toes into the sand and soaking up the summer sun. Many of you are still experiencing autumn, and while it's technically not winter yet, Minnesota is running with it. While the mornings and evenings are darker, we're spending a lot more time lighting up our home. I brought some copper wire string lights and wrapped them around my citrus trees that have moved indoors for a few months. The baskets are filled with mittens, and heavy blankets are coming out of storage. 

I know lots of people are annoyed by the Target Christmas displays, but I love them. We're a people of hope and anticipation. 'Tis the season, y'all.

Blessed Is She has done it again, and they have some amazing Advent goodies, the highlight being the journal written by Laura Fanucci and designed by Erica Tighe

You can snag the print here

Or you can get the mug here

But you definitely need to get the journal. They sell out every year, so get one while you still can because there's a limited number of copies. 

And if you've got a prayer group that meets in person, you can register for and watch the free Advent gathering put together by Blessed Is She called Out of Nothing. There will be a talk by Fr. John Parks, and our very own Beth Davis. It will be a live event, but you can watch it later. And if you register you get a free group leader guide, but this is definitely something you can do on your own time. Aside from the talks there will be time for prayer, reflection, and journaling.
