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.

Faith in Paradox: Ordinary & Wondrous
Saint: Van Gogh
Practices: Work, Rest, Play, Disruption

Originally, Urban Skye was not going to be a writing contributor being content to oversee the large project. However, as the publishing gods would have it, one church needed to back out and we gladly stepped in.  It was a group effort for sure.  Unashamedly biased, you will enjoy using our Daily Office prayers - I love the last lines of the Morning Prayer. They are imaginative and grounding all at once.  We divide our 28 day month cleanly into four weeks around our practices.  Each week you'll read about a particular Van Gogh painting and meet a representative saint (you've likely not heard of Scotsman Henry Drummond but you need to know him, see Feb. 19).  Both Jeremiah and Jesus weigh in on our four themes.  Jeremiah on "play" was a challenge but I think it works.  And, if you do nothing else, read our leap day contribution in which the ancient Celts help us discover the wondrous in the ordinary.
