Home > Advent & Christmas Devotional 2023

In the sacred tapestry of the Christian liturgical calendar, this year marks a significant expansion in our journey of faith as we extend our devotional reflections to encompass not only the season of Advent but also the joyous celebration of Christmas—as well as the illuminating days of Epiphany and the Baptism of Our Lord.

Echoes and Epiphanies is an invitation to embark on a scriptural pilgrimage, to discover the nuanced resonances and radiant epiphanies of Jesus Christ. It is an opportunity to appreciate the intricacy of God’s redemptive story and to inspire a life attuned not just to Christ’s gentle reverberations but to His moments of illuminating truth.

We encourage you to download the devotional and share it widely. We pray it guides you in your reflections, and deepens your faith during this extended season of grace and revelation.
