We are excited to introduce our new advent resource for 2021, Come Peasant, King. Last year, as communities met remotely during unprecedented times, we witnessed hundreds of churches journey together in new ways through the Advent season.
Advent is an intentional season marked by reflections on hope, peace, joy, and love as we remember and anticipate the coming of Christ, but Advent is not marked only by reflection and waiting. During this uniquely Christian season, disciples of Jesus are also called to act in specific ways that, however small, God wants to use for kingdom purposes. This year, Olivia Metcalf partnered with The Foundry, writing our four-week devotional on these themes of Advent.
Along with the devotional, we will be offering downloadable resources for pastors, children’s leaders, and youth leaders.
Here is a quick sneak peek at what is included in this years Advent resource:
Come Peasant, King: An Advent Devotional Come Peasant, King is a four-week devotional journey that weaves together Scripture, reflections, prayer, and interactive moments around the themes of Advent. Daily readings and reflections are written by Olivia Metcalf.
