The Upper Room

Weavings Journal is a quarterly publication that promotes a pattern of faithful living marked by prayer, community, and engagement. Such living, to which laity and clergy alike are called, embraces all those expressions of discipline and discipleship that mark the Christian's response to God's work of weaving together the torn fabric of life. Weavings provides a space where questions posed by contemporary life and the spiritual resources of the Christian heritage can encounter and illuminate one another. The journal strives to create an ecumenical forum in which contributors and readers can converse on important matters of common concern. Organized by themes each issue presents a broad range of Christian traditions and disciplines. Click here to visit the Weavings website.

Advent Hope

Weavings Journal

Hope. Perhaps no other word better illumines the Advent story. Hope that Mary would say Yes! Hope that Joseph would not reject her upon hearing the news of her pregnancy. Hope that their long journey to Bethlehem would bring no harm. Hope that the bright star overhead would bring only good.
