Day 1

Reading - Genesis 1:1-5

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.


As we begin Advent, we think about God’s creation and the journey we’re about to take. What are you looking forward to about Advent this year?


Creator God, may you be our guiding light on this journey towards Christmas. Help us find our way through the darkness of winter towards the light of spring and your love. Amen.


On the first day of Advent:

  • Find or make a crib and place it in the stable.
  • Plan a journey you can take in nature this week.
