The World WaitsAdvent 2016
Amid the turmoil, stress, and distractions of daily life, something deep within us yearns for peace, joy, and love — and the fullness of life for which we were made. In this Season of Advent we bring this yearning to the surface, ready to be fulfilled by the story of Jesus.
Recorded Meditations for Advent
This is a very busy time of year for many of us — maybe the busiest. But Advent should also be a time of waiting, reflection, and spiritual renewal.
For what are you waiting this Advent?
To help you wait and reflect, we will offer again this year a series of weekly recorded meditations. Each one is designed to provide a starting point for your own meditation. Each contains a passage of scripture, two or three questions for reflection, and some peaceful background music.
These recordings can help you find a little peace and spiritual rest in the middle of your busy day.
These recorded meditations are designed to help you enter a relaxed, prayerful, meditative state of mind. Do not operate machinery, drive a car, or do anything else that requires your attention while you are listening to these.
