In this special Advent episode, the pastors discuss what Advent means to them. Leaning into the anticipation of the season, holding grief and hope simultaneously, allows us to feel true joy on Christmas day. They also share their daily practices they keep throughout the season: lighting candles, going on walks, reading the Daily Prayer, singing songs, looking at Christmas lights, and more!

Also in this episode, a little talkback about the previous episode. And as always, we end with Spiritual Show and Tell: The Awakened Heart by Gerald May, snail mail, and whistling.
