"Waiting with All Creation:" Online Advent Study with the Wisdom Years Ministry

But ask the animals, and they will teach you; the birds of the air, and they will tell you – Job 12:7

This Advent, the Wisdom Years Ministry will appropriate the wisdom of nature and wait quietly but assuredly for the magnificent thing to happen. The God of all creation – the one who by his very word created the moon and the stars and every living, breathing creature on the earth – comes among us to show us the kingdom He intends for his people.

They will read Gayle Boss’s splendid Advent book of daily meditations All Creation Waits, then gather on Thursdays beginning December 7 at 4:00 p.m. CDT via Zoom for an hour of conversation. In addition, participants can receive an optional daily text message of Advent thoughts and inspiration.

There is no charge for the study, but participants will need to purchase their own book. It is available at St. Mark’s Bookstore at or other book retailers. Scholarships are available for book purchase.

To join the conversation and for more information, email Marjorie George at
