Sunday, December 1 marked the first day of the Advent season. For the next three weeks, Prasanta Verma and I want to provide some lovely links to nourish you during this season of anticipation, of waiting, of darkness pierced with the glimmering of light.
With this in mind, below you will find links to prayers, poetry, resources, reflections, and writing tips for the Advent season.
Be blessed as you await the coming of the light.
A Litany for the First Week of Advent via Christine Sine (welcome Advent with this prayer of supplication)
Surprised by Advent via Jen Pollock Michel (the first in a series of Advent audio reflections)
No Country for Two Kings via Leslie Leyland Fields (this is Leslie’s first Christmas poem in 20 years—she’s tried, but nothing…until now)
Advent–Waiting via Jody Lee Collins (a poem for Advent)
Advent Companions: The Books And Music I Love In The Season Of Waiting via Sarah Clarkson (we love this list of Advent resources)
Do You Have a Holiday Writing Plan? via Rachelle Gardner (some tips for surviving and thriving as a writer during this season)
With love to you,
Lisa and Prasanta
