A Quiet Advent

(Addition, 1PM - Given the eagerness people are already showing, I will extend the offer to multiple bloggers for each week of Advent)
Sorry to displace you out of fall into Advent for a moment, but I am searching for guest bloggers for a series I'm calling "A Quiet Advent." The holidays seem to belong to the extroverts out there, but I've always considered Advent a quiet season. So here is my proposal - for the four Sundays of Advent I would love to have 4 people write up reflections on the theme of their Sunday of choice. So it would go:

November 27 - A Quiet Hope
December 4 - A Quiet Love
December 11 - A Quiet Joy
December 18 - A Quiet Peace

You don't have to be an introvert to write one of these reflections, but it should be a reflection on the quieter side of Advent and the Christmas season. And while biblical, theological, and spiritual reflection is welcome, the more personal you can go with these, the better. Imagine that you are sitting with your family and friends on a cold night in December around a firepit, talking about what the season means to you.

If you are interested, email me with your idea at adamsmchugh at gmail dot com. I would need your reflection a week before the Sunday it posts and it can't be more than 750 words.

And now you may return to autumn.
