A Journey of Faith Through Advent

An excerpt from Walking to the Manger: An Advent Devotional

Walking to the Manger: An Advent Devotional is a collection of devotionals inviting you to make walking, reflecting and prayer a part of your daily Advent practice. Every week begins with an opportunity to set a “movement goal,” or a reasonable physical challenge for yourself.

For a child has been born for us, a son given to us; authority rests upon his shoulders; and he is named Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

—Isaiah 9:6

Reflection

Wonderful counselors do more listening than talking. As you begin your Advent journey, whether walking or sitting quietly and meditating, talk to God openly and honestly.

Prayer

Gracious God, hear my prayers for guidance throughout my Advent journey with you. Amen.
