Welcome to our church’s 2019 Advent Devotional. The theme for this year’s devotional is Seeking Peace/Breaking Barriers. This was inspired by some of the preparatory readings done by the group that traveled to Israel/Palestine in October of this year. Peace can be many things more than absence of conflict, whether armed, political or personal, and lack of peace is often caused by barriers.
Each week, we will focus on one scripture from the lectionary; the reflections have been written by members of the FUMC congregation and staff. New devotions will be added to this site daily from Sunday, December 1, through Christmas Day, Wednesday, December 25.
Advent is a time of preparation to welcome the Christ Child, the Prince of Peace. May you find avenues to peace in these reflections.
