Happy Thursday. I'm writing to you from my living room, because it's so cozy with the tree up. And, it's been a killer week, so I'm working from home with hot tea and house shoes.
It's the third week of Advent, and we are excited to share episode 2 of the podcast with you. As you listen you'll hear Lacy and me discuss the season of Advent, including our attempts to incorporate the season in our homes and with our families. We share the ways we focus on the themes of anticipation, expectancy, and hope, and even elements of the season that challenge us.
Listen below, through iTunes, or your favorite podcasting app.
We would be honored if you would be willing to leave a review on iTunes. (Simply follow this link!) As a little incentive, if you leave us a review between now and our next episode, you'll be entered to win a planner or prayer labyrinth print from me. Before the airing of episode 3 on next Wednesday, Dec. 23rd, we will randomly choose our winner, who will be able to choose which they'd like. If there are more than 10 reviews, we'll give away more! We're up to 3 so far...
If you'd like to read more of Jan Richardson's blessings, you can pick up her latest book Circle of Grace, which I shared the closing blessing from at the end of the episode. You can also join the Still Forming Advent Meditations group that our friend Christianne Squires has been leading, where she is offering meditations through the Advent season (including audio meditations based on the Advent blessings in Jan's book). To learn more, visit Christianne at stillforming.com.
