Daily reading: 2 Kings 22:1-10, 23:1-3

Focus passage: He did what was right in the LORD’s eyes, and walked in the ways of his ancestor David – not deviating from it even a bit to the right or left.  2 Kings 22:2

Today begins the season of Advent.  It is the season that begins the liturgical church year and in the northern hemisphere it coincides with a shortening of days until we reach the winter solstice that happens a few days before our celebration of Christmas.

Advent takes us through a season of darkening days, of decreasing temperatures and invites us into an intentional period of introspection, reflection, anticipation, of waiting and preparing.

Advent is a season of preparing more room for God in your life and for inviting in the presence of God in friend and stranger.  

Prayer:  God of all beginnings and fresh starts bring your hope into our lives today.  Amen.
