Two Ways to Journey Through Advent with 24-7 Prayer International by Andy Freeman

1) ‘Light Breaking’ – Daily Reading, Prayer and Thought

This Advent why not join us for a daily reading, prayer and thought called ‘Light Breaking’ on the 24-7 Daily mobile app.

Isaiah said “the people in darkness have seen a great light” (Isaiah 9:2).  That light is Jesus born as a baby, come to bring a new and everlasting light into the world.  It is good news that we celebrate at Christmas and we’d light to meditate on that goodness and light each day for this season.

Franciscan theologian Richard Rohr once asked why do we spend so much time trying to think about the ‘problem of evil’?  How about instead thinking about the problem of goodness – how come in such a dark world there is so much light, love and goodness around us.  

Advent is a time when the goodness around us can come into focus once again.  Goodness exists because of our God, every good and perfect gift comes from him (James 1:17).  You could say this light which breaks into our world is like the fingerprint of God – an act of mercy, a moment of forgiveness, a miracle, a person finding faith – all this stems from the baby born in a manger in Bethlehem.  All this is light breaking in just as Isaiah spoke about. This is what we’d like to look at this Advent.

You can download the 24-7 Daily mobile app for free on both ios and android.

2) Devotional Video Podcast

For advent will we will also be re-releasing the 2011 Advent Podcast series – ‘The Vision is Jesus’.
