2018 Advent Meditations
The 2018 Advent Meditations are now available to download. This year's devotions encourage reflection and action, and build upon   Bishop Michael Curry's Way of Love and its seven rule-of-life practices. They open us to a practice of evangelism that is authentic to Episcopal spirituality, and perhaps different than what you might imagine. What better way to prepare for Christ's continual coming into our lives and world than by seeking and celebrating God's loving and active presence in the lives of all people? Note: These devotions were first released by The Episcopal Church as the "30 Days of Evangelism" developed by Becky Zartman and Patricia Lyons.
