Meeting Christ at Broadway and Bethlehem: Day by Day Through Advent
Immanuel Lutheran in Boise, ID is offering an Advent opportunity for prayerful devotion and quiet time combined with a weekly reflection of the Advent devotional booklet, Meeting Christ at Broadway and Bethlehem: Day by Day Through Advent by Edward Hays.
The devotional booklet is free and available by download from edwardhays.com. You may also contact the Immanuel office and request the PDF file by email. Printed copies will be available in the Immanuel office.
You may use this booklet on your own or join the Reflection Group each week. Two weekly sessions will be held on Wednesdays via Zoom. Participants are welcome to attend either one. The first one will be from 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm with the second one running from 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm. We will begin on Wednesday, December 1 and end on Wednesday, December 22.
Each week we will begin with a ten-minute devotional quiet time that will start with a piece of music. There will then be a reading from scripture, followed by time for silence and personal reflection. We will close with another piece of music. You will be encouraged to have a candle lit near you during this time or other items to create a meditative space. In the final fifty minutes everyone will have an opportunity to share an ‘aha’ moment or other thoughts on the daily readings we will have read the past week.
Using the Zoom format gives people who do not live near Immanuel or even in the Boise area the opportunity to join us online. Please contact the Immanuel office at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 208-344-3011 to sign up and to give your email address to the office so that you are able to receive the Zoom link.
If you have any questions please contact Heidi Gainan, Kathryn Baerwald, or Barbara Harrison Condon.
