Perhaps joy is sown in the meaningful ways we choose to mark and celebrate our lives. Can rituals bring meaning to our lives when our futures are deeply uncertain? Can new rituals help us make meaning of confusing, ambiguous, daunting, or difficult chapters in our lives? What are the unexpected blessings that can come from ritual acts?

“Advent” comes from the Latin word adventus which means “coming”. The season of Advent is the first season of the Christian church year and encompasses the four weeks leading up to Christmas. It is a season of waiting and preparing for the coming of Christ on Christmas, which lasts for 12 days until Epiphany (January 6).

This Advent, we will be going through a series titled How does a weary world rejoice? created by A Sanctified Art. We hope these daily meditations will accompany and inspire you on your Advent journey!
