Dear Friends of Seminary of the Southwest,
In these daily writings members of our community reflect on the mystery of the incarnation through the medium of their own lives and in their unique voices. I am delighted to share with you this book of Advent meditations and prayers written by our faithful alumni, students, faculty, staff, trustees, and friends. It is a collaboration that conveys the distinctiveness and diversity of our community as we each meditate on the joy and promise anticipated during Advent.
Advent offers a time for intentional reflection on the world around us and focused preparation for the feast of Christmas. While the culture pressures us to frenzy, the rhythms of Advent are those of quiet patience. May these short meditations be a companion as you move through each day of the season, connecting you with the writer and with the wider community of Seminary of the
Southwest and our pattern of reading scripture and prayer.
Please pray for our lovely and troubled world this Advent season, and pray that we at Seminary of the Southwest might continue to be equipped and supported by the Spirit to take our part in God’s healing mission.
Wishing you and yours a blessed Advent and joyous Christmas.
Cynthia Briggs Kittredge
Dean and President
