Advent Devotional: Those Who Dream

Art, reflections, and prompts for a season of dreaming. This devotional is for the dreamers in all of us – those who dream of a deeper connection with God and those who dream of a better world. It’s for those who dream of comfort and for those who have given up on their dreams. As you walk through these prompts and readings day by day, may you dream alongside prophets and angels, Mary and the Magi. Together, may we seek and sow God’s dreams for our world. You may pick up a copy of the devotional at the church!
