Happy Advent! Below is a list of some of the best sites for devotionals and prayers throughout Advent. Almost all the sites featured below will have new entries each day of Advent. We will update this list from time to time as we discover new websites. Resources marked “*(A)” are from the Anglican tradition.
A Special New Anglican Advent resource for 2014:
*(A) Advent Bible Study Video series on the Second Coming from ACNA Bishop Julian Dobbs. A really wonderful Advent teaching series. Don’t miss this!
Sites featuring Regular Advent Devotional Reflections & Prayers:
- Newly Added: *(A) If you read nothing else, we encourage you to start each day of Advent with Scripture! Here are each day’s readings according to the Daily Office of the Book of Common Prayer (ESV Bible online). Should you prefer to read the Daily Office Scriptures in another version, you can find a clear table with all the readings here.
- Our Advent Devotionals category here at Lent & Beyond.
- Emily Polis Gibson’s Barnstorming blog and her special Advent series for 2014 “Awaiting His Arrival” – Emily’s mix of poetry, photographs, and reflections on Scripture make her Advent series a truly special gift to all who read her blog. Highly recommended!
- Biola University’s online Advent calendar. The best new Advent resource from 2013 is back again for 2014. Truly EXCELLENT! Substantive reflections on Scripture, artwork, music… Again, this site is a special gift. Don’t miss it!
- *(A) Anglican Mainstream’s daily Advent devotionals: Anglican Mainstream is again posting daily Advent meditations from the Church of the Resurrection in Tampa, FL.
- *(A) Trinity School for Ministry’s daily Advent reflections, short daily reflections written by the faculty and students at the seminary.
- Godspace blog: Christine Sine posts wonderful original Advent prayers and meditations, podcasts, and tons of wonderful Advent resources. Christine encourages contemplation and application – ensuring we live out the Gospel in our lives, in care for those in need.
- *(A) The Rev. Patrick Comerford is featuring a Hymns of Advent series for Advent 2014. Very recommended for those who love to learn about history and liturgy. His entries are usually very rich in terms of their focus on Anglican heritage.
