how to #pictureadvent
Welcome to #pictureAdvent 2023. We are pleased to offer a daily devotional through Advent that is created to help you and your family prepare your hearts and homes for Christmas. This daily resource invites you to reflect on scripture with your eyes and hearts using Visio Divina (Latin for "divine seeing"). This is a method for praying with images or other media. Every day you will receive an e-mail with an invitation to:
- View: 3-4 images
- Read: Daily Scripture
- Wonder: reflect on the questions (as an individual, family, or in community)
- Respond: using the #pictureAdvent bingo
Steps for picturing advent:
- Subscribe to #pictureadvent at pictureadvent.com
- Starting on December 3rd, move through the daily devotional playlist as you take time to view, read, wonder, pray, and respond. You might choose to do this as an individual, a family, or in community.
- Find a way to respond:
- Choose an activity from the #pictureadvent bingo card
- Capture and share your own pictures as you continue to reflect on the daily scripture and wondering questions.
- Post your pictures via social media (If/when posting pictures of minors make sure you have permission to use their photos) with #pictureadvent
- Follow #pictureadvent and see how others around the world are connecting to God during this Holy time.
