Partners in Prayer 2015


Sing a new song! Psalm 98, from which these words are taken, speaks of the whole earth greeting the promised Messiah. During Advent, God’s people are called to learn new songs and to hear old songs in new ways, both as faithful individuals and as faith communities. The songs of scripture serve as texts for this year's Advent devotional, written by a member of The Young Clergy Women Project, an ecumenical organization supporting female clergy under the age of 40 from a wide array of experiences, denominations, and geographical locations. People of all ages and denominations will be drawn deeper into the Advent season and prepare themselves for the coming of Christ.

Sing a new song! Psalm 98, from which these words are taken, speaks of the whole earth greeting the promised Messiah. During Advent, God’s people are called to learn new songs and to hear old songs in new ways, both as faithful individuals and as faith communities. The songs of scripture serve as texts for this year's Advent devotional. Each day, readers are invited to read a short passage of scripture, and to reflect on that passage using a brief meditation written by a member of The Young Clergy Women Project, an ecumenical organization supporting female clergy under the age of 40. The authors of this devotional represent a wide array of experiences, denominations, and geographical locations. People of all ages and denominations will be drawn deeper into the Advent season and prepare themselves for the coming of Christ.
