Prophetic Task: Advent Time Out

Advent begins on December 3rd.  So that we can focus on the beginning of the Christian year, I am taking a “time out” from this ongoing series.  It will return on Tuesday, January 2nd.

But I want to remind you of two ways you can let Walter Brueggemann’s thinking enrich your Advent experience…

(1) Gift and Task (WJK, 2017) begins the first Sunday in Advent and provides daily readings for Year Two of the Daily Office in The Book of Common Prayer.  It is the resource I have previously recommended, and the one I will use during Advent and beyond.

(2) Cultivating Abundance (WJK, 2017) is a new volume (compiled by Richard Floyd as he did for Brueggeman’s Lenten resource, A Way Other Than Our Own)–a book of reflections for the Advent season.

But whether or not you make Walter Brueggemann a fellow traveler on your Advent journey through one of these ways, I pray the season will be a blessing for you and yours.  I look forward to continuing “The Prophetic Task” series here on January 2nd.
