Advent Journey 2021

What came to be through him was life, and this life was the light of the human race.
(John 1:3-4)

Isn’t it amazing that the modern holiday season coincides with the Christian season of Advent?  At its best, Advent is four weeks of sacred time to prepare our hearts for the JOY of Christmas.

The Journey Begins

Welcome the Light: Journey of Advent & Christmas is a daily devotional experience, Sunday Nov 28 – Jan 5. Journey participants receive a short meditation, Bible verse and prayer by text or email each day during this special season.

Welcome the LIGHT!

Christ is our light, giving us growth and guidance each step we take on life’s journey. What better time than Advent to refresh our awareness of Jesus coming to us as divine light? What better year for opening our minds and hearts to welcome the gift of light?

Making the Most of the Journey

Crossroads’ seasonal journeys are created for individual and relational growth. Here’s our recommendation for making the most of this 2021 Advent-Christmas Experience:

  1. Register online to receive the free digital package of daily Advent meditations: scripture verse, short reading and prayer for today.
  2. Pick up a complimentary votive candle at the Journey table in the Crossroads atrium. Light this candle each day during your devotional time.
  3. If you share a home with others, consider lighting the candle and sharing the devotions together.
  4. Participate in a Crossroads service (online or in person) each week during Advent and the Twelve Days of Christmas. During the worship gathering, we will light candles and share together the Sunday meditation.

May each day we pray with the daily meditations of this Advent Journey draw us fresh appreciation of God’s generous presence. May you allow this inner light to generate kindness and goodwill toward yourself and all God’s creatures.
