The resource includes scripture, reflection and prayer for each Sunday in Advent for use by individuals or congregations.
As the introduction of the resource states, “Advent is a time of waiting. During this season, we look with eager anticipation to the coming of Christ into our lives and our world. Our longing for what will come can awaken us to the yearning, in the hearts of many Israelis and Palestinians, for a lasting peace in their land. During Advent, as Christians in the U.S. we pray for a just peace for the Jews, Christians and Muslims in the Holy Land.”
