Advent 2014

Sundays Nov. 30, Dec. 7, 14, 21

To help us create sacred space during the busiest season of the year, Urban Skye is pleased to offer five unique Advent Guides!

Each guide is created around a different theme that we overlay on the Nativity. Using a four-week format, we invite readers into the story and then into a personal response useful for families, groups or congregations. With imaginative language and a disarming beauty, we appeal to the spiritually curious of all stages on the journey of faith!

How our guides have been used:
 *Churches have offered them to their congregations and neighborhoods
 *Pastors have used them as a four-week teaching series
 *Non-profits have sent them to supporters
 *Employers have given them for staff or volunteer gifts
 *Families have used them for devotionals
 *Individuals have sent them in place of Christmas cards

Follow A Denver Book of Prayer month by month!

We decided that Denver should have its own common prayer book and invited twelve faith communities to collaborate on an original book of prayer structured around the theme "Faith in Paradox."

Each month a new Denver guide will introduce themselves with a word-pair reflecting their take on "Faith in Paradox" and their chosen Saint. Then, settle in for a month of guidance in the form of The Daily Office, Daily Readings and Weekly Spiritual Practices.

 Enjoy this one-of-a-kind celebration of unity and diversity. May it help form your spirit, delight your soul, and remind you that you are not alone on the journey of faith.

Ecclesia Denver
Faith in Paradox: Desecration and Incarnation
Saint: St. Athanaseus
Practices: Lectio Divina, Meditative Journey, Intentional Giving, Candle Lighting

None of our ADBP guides take more seriously their given month than Ecclesia.  As December is always the heart of Advent we find reflections on the season and the Nativity complete with Christmas Eve/Day writings.  Most of what they offer is original - like the "prayer for the urban soul" (Dec. 2) - and all of it is beautiful.  Useful as well.  If you have wondered about "lectio divina", Ecclesia will tell you all about it. You will notice from the start a couple things. First, there is unusual depth to this congregation as witnessed by their paradox and their first text: Psalm 13.  Second, you'll feel their ancient vibe and, with it, a timeless quality to what they offer. That is especially meaningful as Ecclesia Denver no longer exists as an organization.  What they were and what they continue to be are beautiful guides for The Church.
