S1 | E2: Advent + Crafting Traditions


Sacred Ordinary Days Season 1 | Episode 2

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, or your favorite podcasting app.



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.


How has practicing Advent impacted your spiritual journey and the way you celebrate Christmas?
What Advent traditions do you have in your family?
Maybe using the categories of Spirit, Body, Mind, Relationships, Home, and Work from the workbook might be helpful as you begin to think about how to embody this season. We’d love to hear what you come up with!
