advent 2008 | responses

levi has already had some time to work on these messages and we have some creative responses that we will be doing each week. let us know if you’d like to include these ideas in your advent planning.

week 1 – Zecharia and Elizabeth – lectio divina
quiet reflection on the scriptures of advent. a friend of ours recorded all the scriptures for advent and we will be giving everyone a CD with them all so they can hear the scriptures read and reflect. hearing a different voice reading the scripture can bring different things out of it. we will also include instructions for how to use the CD and a guide to lectio divina.

week 2 – Mary – $5 mcdonalds gift card
use this card to bless a stranger. you can’t use it on yourself or your family. give it to the cashier at the drive-thru on the ticket behind you, or give it to someone in line behind you.

week 3 – Joseph – questions
questions to help people reflect on the scripture, specifically Joseph’s part of the Christmas story.
