2020 has forced the entire world to wait. We are waiting on a cure, waiting on justice, waiting on the political process. We are all waiting. This year during Advent we are examining how God works through a season of waiting. The ancient world desperately waited for the Messiah. We greatly anticipate his return. In our waiting we each have assignments to grow in our faith and to seek after Kingdom-sized vision for the future. Our prayer is that through this season FBCSA will be a compass on your journey. May our worship help you to focus on the promises fulfilled. May the Advent devotional help your quiet, still moments. May the music of Advent fill your spirit to overflowing with gratitude.
This year, members of FBCSA again came together to bring you a daily devotional to help focus your heart on God's promised Messiah. Each day we will read through scripture, hear commentary from different members of our community and close in prayer together.
We have stepped up the devotional experience a bit this year! At the bottom of each daily devotional you will find a QR code that will direct your smart phone to a piece of music that was specifically chosen for each passage of scripture or the words written in the devotional. Simply scan the code using your camera app on your phone and it will be directed to a YouTube link. We hope that this will add another dimension of worship each day.
Physical copies will be available in Unity Hall on Sunday, November 22 and 29. They will also be available Monday through Friday through the front doors of the Porté Cochere.
You may also download a digital version of the full Advent Devotional below.
Advent Devotional Daily Calendar
If that wasn't enough, also have a webpage that will provide you with the devotional of the day along with the a clickable QR code that will take you to the musical link. This will work great on mobile devices.
