2017 Advent Justice Liturgy Project - Download PDF

The season of Advent is an amazing opportunity to explore justice and God’s intention to make all things new in Jesus. As we rehearse the story of the incarnation of Christ, we do so by leaning into the experience of Israel’s longing for the Messiah who would establish a Kingdom of righteousness, justice and peace. That historical longing helps us to tap into our own longings, for a world made right, for a deep sense of new life in the midst of death and destruction, for our communities to reflect God’s original intent.
