what is this?

This is a special project for the Advent season. It is a short-term but intentional community of friends and connections from many places who have agreed to practice attention in the run up to Christmas Day, so that we can learn to appreciate the many ways we have been gifted.

We live with the awareness that often the busyness and commerciality of the season leads to inattention, so that we are constantly in danger of not noticing. Maybe this year, if we are intentional about attention, and then blogging about what we see, we might be better prepared for the advent of the Christ Child, the great Gift of God.

For 2010, we begin on November 28 and end on December 25th.

    It is so inspiring to read all your comments and musings about advent. No matter where we are, we are all united by this superb being “Jesus”. How he touches our lives even on the most mundane of activities. Looking at a sunset, walking on the beach, talking to friend, listening to someone talk, sharing with our loved ones, He is there with us….awesome.

    Sharing this time of preparation for the celebration of his birth, I am just full of gratitude….
