A Word about AdventWord…

For the seventh year in a row, #AdventWord will gather prayers via a global, online Advent calendar. Virginia Theological Seminary is offering meditations and images during this holy season beginning Sunday, November 29. Images and meditations can be experienced via the #AdventWord website, direct daily emails, as well as on FacebookInstagram and Twitter, and ASL videos via YouTube. This year, meditations will also be available in English, Spanish, and Haitian Creole.

“It is so easy in the noise of December to lose sight of the privilege of waiting for the arrival of the Christ Child. This brilliant idea invites us all to pause every day of Advent – to pray, think, and respond. The beauty in the response is a calendar that will be shared with others.”

Very Rev. Ian S. Markham, Dean and President of Virginia Theological Seminary

Join an international community in prayer to explore the mystery and wonder of Advent!

“The hope is to create a global prayer network, with images and meditations, stretching across countries and languages, as we enter into this holy season of preparation.”
