Introducing “Thread of Hope”- A PWRDF Advent resource
PWRDF is pleased to launch our 2021 Advent resource, Thread of Hope. This rich resource has been designed to accompany you on your Advent journey and ties together a diverse array of writers, viewpoints activities. It will include daily scripture readings, reflections, prayers or meditations and PWRDF stories of hope.

As in years’ past, the resource will be available to you as a daily message in your inbox, or as an entire downloadable PDF, ideal for group use.
Advent launch webinar: November 16, 2021, 3 p.m. ET
Please join us for a preview of this resource and learn how you might use it in your personal and parish Advent journey. We will hear from two of the writers, the Rev. Martha Tatarnic and Charlotte Lilley, who will share a sampling of their contributions to the resource.
