Advent Church Cracked Open: Engaging the Journey
As we move into that time when we are tempted to post reminders that ‘Jesus is the
reason for the season’, Social and Ecological Justice Huron is offering this Advent study
which draws from the discussion of the “Way of Love: seven practices for Jesuscentered life” as this is described in Stephanie Spellers’ “The Church Cracked Open:
Disruption, Decline, and new Hope for Beloved Community”. These include:
1. Turn again and again to God.
2. Learn Jesus’s ways through scripture and holy reading.
3. Pray and dwell intentionally with God every day.
4. Worship God weekly through community praise, thanksgiving, and petition.
5. Bless one another by giving our lives away in love.
6. Go across borders to join in solidarity and heal brokenness.
7. Rest in God’s grace, because the revolution is not ultimately up to us.
Each week, this resource will invite participants to reflect on some of the practices for
Jesus-centered life through the lens of the different Advent Gospel stories and videos
exploring ministry around the Diocese of Huron.
This program is designed with flexibility in mind allowing it to be used independently,
and as an online and/or in person program within congregations, deaneries, or other
groups. We hope that all who engage find this journey meaningful.
