Congregational Life Ministries staff are posting a daily blog on www.brethren.org to accompany the 2014 Advent devotional published by Brethren Press. The blogposts are provided each day from the first Sunday of Advent, Nov. 30, through Epiphany on Jan. 6, 2015.
Blogposts are written by different staff of the Church of the Brethren Congregational Life Ministries, and each includes the scripture reference, a question for reflection, and a prayer for the day. Go to http://blog.brethren.org/category/devotional .
The Brethren Press Advent devotional titled “Awake: Devotions for Advent Through Epiphany,” is written by Sandy Bosserman, a former district executive and an ordained minister in the Church of the Brethren. The theme is inspired by 1 Thessalonians 5:5-6 (NIV): “You are all children of the light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness. So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be awake and sober.” The pocket-sized paperback format is suitable for individual use and for congregations to supply to their members. Purchase for $2.75 per copy, or $5.95 for large print, at www.brethrenpress.com or call Brethren Press at 800-441-3712.
