From Disorder to Order.
An Advent Series 2023

If you are like me, you can feel the disorder of the world deep in your bones. Loss, war, mental health crisis, AI, death, meaninglessness, wayward children, betrayal, illness...

The list is long, and the reality of the list impacts each of us personally in various ways. Our stories are different, but one thing we all have in common is that we experience the effects of the Fall every single day of our lives. Simply put, things are not as they are meant to be.

What does it mean to trust God in the chaos? How can we rest when things seem fragile and unpredictable? What does it look like to be people of hope in a world of disorder?

Join me for my 2024 Advent Series. Let's fix our eyes on the one who brings order to our lives, no matter how disordered they are.

A Simple Advent Series. 

One of my personal goals each year is to write an Advent Series for those who want to wait well in the stuck places of their lives. I am writing it for me, too. 

Each Sunday of Advent you will receive a reflection with some thoughts, quotes, and questions to help you engage your heart. For all of human history we have looked for solutions in every category of life: education, relationships, family, finances, and accomplishments. Likewise, we trust our own competency to forge a way out of these "disordered places." Mostly, we stay busy and stuff down all the negative emotions. But there is a different way. As Thomas Merton wrote: "God's plan was that [the Israelites] should learn to love him in the wilderness and that they should always look back upon the time in the desert as the idyllic time of their life with HIM alone." 

May this season be a time when you attach to him in a way you have not previously known.
