Sign up for #AdventWord Images & Meditations
By James Koester, SSJE, Superior | The Society of Saint John the Evangelist
Advent begins on Sunday, December 3. If you would like to receive #AdventWord this year we invite you to click this link: http://www.adventword.org/sign-up. #AdventWord, the Anglican Communion’s Global Advent Calendar, contains images and meditations and is available via email, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. During the 23 days of Advent, a daily email featuring the #AdventWord of the day will go out at 5 AM. Respondents are encouraged to share their responses to the meditations and images to the aggregated prayer walls within the advent calendar.
The monks of the Society of Saint John the Evangelist (SSJE) pray with images of Jesus in icons. #AdventWord helps teach everyone how to pray with images as we prepare for the coming of Emmanuel. SSJE developed #AdventWord to bring joy and has passed it on to Virginia Theological Seminary to work with the Anglican Communion Office. SSJE is excited to see #AdventWord being offered to a wider world.
