"Adverbs for Advent": 2022 Study with the Wisdom Years Ministry

Starting December 1, join the Wisdom Years for a three-week online study of Adverbs for Advent by Marilyn McEntyre. Participants will gather online to seek wisdom from each other and from their own souls and experience.

Wisdom Years co-leader, Marjorie George shares, "How will we live Advent this year? How can we be intentional about answering the call of Advent to wait with expectation that our God is sending the Holy One to live among us as one of us? In Adverbs for Advent, author Marilyn McEntyre offers daily Advent meditations that can shape our lives, preparing us to be holy vessels for the coming Christ so that we too can declare a message of love and peace to our hurting world. The adverbs we encounter in this devotional challenge us to live as Jesus did - patiently, harmoniously, joyously, boldly, and simply."

In this Wisdom Years study, participants will read the meditations on their own, then gather on three Thursdays by Zoom (December 1, 8, and 15) for conversation and community. Each week will end with a short time of prayer and reflection. Bring a candle to light.

Participants can also opt to receive a daily thought or inspiration by text throughout Advent. Click here to buy a copy of the book, but there is no other registration charge.
