This Advent season, coinciding with the 75th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, aligns secular principles with Christian doctrine in the shared pursuit of ending oppression. This year’s Advent Guide will center on two marginalized communities, women and the LGBTQ+ community. Through the lens of scripture, we draw inspiration to prepare for the in-breaking of God’s Kin-dom, envisioning a world where all individuals will flourish to their God-given potential.
Use this worship guide to lead your congregation along the journey of bearing witness to the truth that we are all One in Christ: Equal in Dignity and Rights. And use these devotions to ground yourself in the teachings of our faith that name the truth that we are all One in Christ: Equal in Dignity and Rights.
