Advent Calendar – Highly Recommended

If you read my "Christmas rant," you may have a hunch that I am yearning for Advent – a time of reflection and waiting and anticipation.

The Diocese of Washington is again posting an online Advent calendar, available on December 1.
It features photos of the beguiling little figures from Washington National Cathedral’s crèche exhibit, daily meditations chosen by Vicki Black of the Speaking to the Soul blog on Episcopal Café, and links to giving opportunities culled mostly from Episcopal Relief and Development’s Gifts for Life catalog.

This year the diocese has added audio. There’s a daily carol from the choir of Trinity Wall Street, and weekday podcasts from a team of young preachers led by the Rev. Lonnie Lacy, the Episcopal chaplain at Georgia Southern University.

Don't rush Christmas. Settle into Advent. The Diocese of Washington site is a good place to begin.
