What Are the 2018 AdventWords?

AdventWord will gather prayers via the global, online advent calendar for the fifth year in a row. Virginia Theological Seminary is offering 24 meditations and images during this holy season beginning Sunday, December 2. Images and meditations can be experienced via www.AdventWord.org, direct daily emails, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Join an international community in prayer to explore the mystery and wonder of Advent.
