CMEP Advent Reflections–4th Sunday
Advent is a time of expectations. Biblically we return to scriptures that tell us the story of God coming to dwell with us through the birth of a baby, while politically we work and prepare for the birth of peace. How timely it is then that this year CMEP’s Advent theme is “Prince of Peace”?
In this season of hope, anticipation and celebration, CMEP has put together a series of Advent reflections
These Advent reflections also serve as a celebration of our call to this work for peace that is deeply rooted in our faith.
We encourage you to pass these reflections along to others you know who are working for peace in the Middle East. You can either send this PDF document or refer them to www.cmep.org.
- Another way to use this resource is to help you raise your concerns for peace and the people of the Holy Land in your own congregation in your own way or words.
- Offer a prayer for peace during the prayers of the people or ask your pastor to add this to a corporate prayer.
- Put a note in the bulletin or an article in the newsletter about peace in the Holy Land.
- Add a prayer for peace in the Holy Land to your Christmas cards.
