Welcome to Some Comfort & Joy

It is Advent: a season of preparation; a time of anticipation.

The concepts of seasons and remembering, of ritual and meaning making, are the foundation for Some Comfort and Joy– our free online devotional resource rooted in an Anabaptist-Mennonite reading of scripture. 

Following the liturgical year, we have written bi-weekly devotionals that offer a comfort (a reflection on scripture) and then later that same week a joy (a specific practice that correlating with the theme). 

Most of the (liturgical) church year is considered ordinary time, which is fitting, as this is the way we live most of our lives: in the nitty gritty of the everyday. Laundry. Dishes. Bedtime and morning. Breakfast, lunch, dinner. Repeat. 

But now, we move into the high holy days and special celebration of advent leading to Christmas. For this holiday season we invite you to join us as we explore familiar texts, share family recipes and embrace Christmas cheer.
