“Forward Movement is delighted to be a partner in this year’s #AdventWord,” said Richelle Thompson, managing editor of Forward Movement. “Immersing ourselves in the Word of God is a wonderful way to prepare our hearts for the coming of Christ. #AdventWord offers many different ways to participate, enabling us to make this journey together.”


Savor and steep your Advent journey in the Word of God. Drawn from the weekly scripture readings, these daily devotions offer an opportunity to pause, wait, and watch for the Christ child.

Inspired by the #AdventWord prompts, this booklet of longer, daily reflections include a response or action item and a prayer. In addition, each day features a doodling prompt by artist and Praying in Color author Sybil MacBeth for those who enjoy a hands-on approach to prayer.
