New online and printable Advent & Christmas devotional    for 2020 from Presbyterians Today

We are encouraged to be the light

Howard Thurman’s classic poem — "I Will Light Candles This Christmas" — says that the light that burns brightly is the light of Christ shining through us. It’s a light that dashes away sadness with joy, replaces fear with courage and banishes depair with hope.

This year has indeed been one in need of light. It’s been a year of pandemic, coupled with racial and political unrest. It’s been an unprecedented year that has pushed, dragged, budged and kicked us into speaking boldly and truthfully. It has dared us to step away from the comfort of doing things in the old familiar way and to try something new in our ministries.

Presbyterians Today’s Advent and Christmas devotional for 2020 is no exception. This year’s devotional is online only and is available for free at pcusa.org/2020advent. Churches are encouraged to share this link with members by clicking any of the social media share buttons. You can also download or print a PDF of each week’s section.

The devotional’s theme is based on lighting those candles featured in Thurman’s poem — challenging us to shine not only through the four weeks of Advent, but also through the 12 days of Christmas and ending with the celebration of Epiphany. Each week starts with a stanza from Thurman’s poem and reflection questions. Subsequent days feature a Scripture verse, reflection, closing prayer and an option to go deeper wih suggestions for other activities.
