Resources for Advent

Resources for Advent

The Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society offers a range of resources for the Advent season.

We linked last week to the UTO challenge to raise funds for the Episcopal Migration Ministries. The first of an EMM series of webinars begins this afternoon at 2pm. The Advent Advocacy Update: #RefugeesWelcome series will examine the current crisis surrounding refugee resettlement in the United States.

Each webinar will explore the latest developments and how Episcopalians can be involved in supporting this important work.

The Executive Council’s Advocacy and Networking for Mission committee commends the Litany for Peace in the Holy Land published by the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem, which includes prayers

 for all victims of bloodshed, violence, and persecution.  We especially pray for all in danger and those fleeing persecution in the Holy Land, and throughout the Middle East.

“Beloved and traditional” Advent services are being offered for viewing on demand by the Office of Communication of the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society.

Find the entire range of resources here.

Please don’t follow 815 in referring to the Episcopal Church as the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society. It sounds bureaucratic. Fewer people know what it is, and it advances the interests of people who would have us believe that the staff is independent of the church that employs it.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
