This Advent in the LIFT parish, we have invited folks from our congregations to share some Advent thoughts. This resource, My Favorite Things: Advent Stories from LIFT, is an opportunity to get to know one another and ponder this season. Contributors responded to writing prompts encouraging reflection on various favorite things: carols, verses, memories, gifts given or received, traditions, Bible characters, or reminders of God’s love. These writings are included in this booklet, but also shared through LIFT’s social media, using the hashtag #AdventLIFT. The booklet is found in the file below.
