A Good Enough
ADVENT + CHRISTMASTIDE
A 40-Day Companion to Read,
Reflect, and Pray
Time and again, we are reminded of how precious life is. One moment, we are on the upswing—buoyed by our self-reliance and our success. But the next moment, the foundations of our lives are shaken—by divorce or disease, natural disaster or a global pandemic. We are reminded once again that life is so beautiful and life is so hard. For everyone.
And still, in the midst of the chaos swirling in our inboxes, our hearts, and our calendars, the long dawn of Advent begins, the time when we prepare for the great inversion: God coming to Earth in the form of a human baby. Advent is the season to feel the immensity of what we’ve gained and what we’ve lost
Our hope and prayer is that this Good Enough Advent Companion will be a way for you to make the very act of waiting, holy. And as we anticipate Christ’s birth together, may we experience the stubborn hope of Christmas, joy in the midst of sorrow, a love that knows no bounds, and a transcendent peace amid a world on fire.
Jesus can’t be born soon enough.
