Are you the type who works on a whole season at a time? Are you seeking an Advent theme–or do you already have one to share that those of us who aren’t so ahead-of-the-game can adapt?
Or are you more the week-by-week see-where-the-Spirit-leads planner?
Either way, we’re looking toward Advent. It’s only a few Sundays away, so…what ideas do you have?
We’re looking for candle lighting liturgies, prayers of confession, Advent confessions of faith, prayers of dedication for the season after the stewardship campaign…
Put your ideas out there, submit your already-finished liturgy, or ask questions! We’re here to work together to create the Advent worship experience.
Maybe you have just one line, or even one word, that you’re looking to write liturgy around. Put that in the comments and let the community bounce ideas around until we have things ready to use (or tweak for our own context)!

Our theme this year is “Wonder”- Wonder of the Season, Wonder of the Promise, Wonder of the Message, Wonder of Hope, Wonder of Christmas. Looking for hymn and scripture suggestions!
I love the theme of Wonder! We’re doing “Heaven Revealed” and following some fairly common theme words like Light, Peace, Joy, Hope, Love…revealed. We’re following the Isaiah texts in the lectionary. I wonder (heehee) if you could follow Isaiah as well?
We have our candle liturgy (from Cloth for the Cradle), but I need to write prayers of confession using these themes. I’m debating about making explicit the idea that we block the revealing of God’s light/peace/joy/hope/love in the confession…or just confessing that we close our eyes to it instead.
I’m interested in the ways that the occupations across our world relate to the expectations and hopes we await in the season of Advent. I’m not sure I’ll use it in the liturgy I write — but it’s something I’m thinking about.
