The Brothers of the Society of Saint John the Evangelist in Cambridge, MA organize an annual GLOBAL advent calendar for the Anglican Communion which draws thousands of participants.
Your youth may enjoy this opportunity to see and learn about Anglicans from around the world. This social media connected activity which incorporates creative and meditative thinking could be great project for a church group to do together.
On each day of Advent, we are invited to meditate about the significance of a certain special word (see worksheet). Post a picture inspired by your meditations to facebook, twitter, or instagram with the hashtag #AdventWord. We can also sign up for a daily meditation digest at the Anglican Communion AdventWord website.
We have prepared a pre-Advent planning worksheet that your group can do together. The hope is that this activity will help all participants consider and embody the special meaning of Advent in a supportive and shared environment. View the worksheet>>
